The Aventura Mall will elevate its food offerings in coming months as an expansion wing opens, making the prospect of shopping during the crowded winter season a bit more palatable. Among the newcomers: Genuine Pizza from Miami chef Michael Schwartz, Shake Shack, Luke’s Lobster, Figs by Todd English, My Ceviche, Poke 305 and the Bol.
The first arrival will be Genuine Pizza, expected to open by early December. Then comes a food court dubbed Treats Food Hall, which will open on the third floor of the expansion wing in early 2018. The new food court will feature a dozen well-regarded eateries, including Shake Shack, a popular burgers-and-fries chain from New York restaurateur Danny Meyer that is a cut above typical fast food; My Ceviche, a Miami-based outfit serving marinated raw fish and Peruvian cuisine; and Figs by Todd English, a pizza bistro from the noted Boston-based chef.
More restaurants are expected to open in the expansion wing including Tap 42 Kitchen amd Bar, Pubbelly Sushi, Cvi.che 105, Serafina, Blue Bottle, Joe and the Juice, and Le Pain Quotidien.
