Aventura Mall will be out with the food court and in with the food hall this winter.
The mall’s new Treats Food Hall is slated to open in the coming months, according to a press release. The food hall – featuring beloved restaurants like Shake Shack and Luke’s Lobster – will be on the third level of the mall’s 315,000 square foot expansion wing. The expansion wing will open in November 2017, a spokesperson said, although an opening date for the food hall is forthcoming.
Food halls are a burgeoning trend across the United States, as developers search to provide consumers with appealing, interesting and "buzzing" shopping experiences.
“Treats Food Hall will be highlighted by design aesthetics, attention to detail, and a carefully selected collection of eateries, each with its own style and unique approach,” said Jackie Soffer, owner and manager of Aventura Mall.
Nearly a dozen national and local “eclectic” eateries will join Aventura’s upcoming food hall. Here’s the complete list:
Figs by Todd English
Miami’s first Figs by Todd English restaurant will open in Aventura Mall’s new food hall. The eatery is a concept from American celebrity chef Todd English and serves gourmet, bistro-style every day food.
Cheese fries, anyone? The fast-casual restaurant chain with roots in Madison Square Park is coming to Treats Food Hall. The chain serves burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard and more.
Luke’s Lobster is a northeast favorite that is expanding worldwide, according to the press release. The seafood eatery serves chowders, bisques, lobster and shrimp rolls and more.
Miami Beach’s own GOGO Fresh will grace Treats Food Hall, “serving up everything from salads to Nutella-filled pies.” If you’re craving an empanada, GOGO has those, too.
Seafood lovers will be happy to know that My Ceviche’s seventh location will be in Aventura Mall’s new food hall. My Ceviche began in South Beach and is known for its fresh seafood and ceviche.
