Aventura Mall has undergone a huge transformation. Late last year, the mall opened its multi-million-dollar expansion wing and it continues to welcome new eateries and stores. Whether you’re catching a bite after a movie or looking for some grab-and-go grub while you shop, dining options abound. Learn more about three of the latest additions.
Le Pain Quotidien: Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at this charming bakery and restaurant. Early risers and caffeine fiends can order a cappuccino or espresso or indulge a little with signature drinks like a Belgian mocha. In a hurry? Grab a pastry to go, but we suggest you make some time to sit back and dine. The Paris ham and gruyere cheese croissant should not be rushed and neither should the spicy shrimp and avocado toast. Dinner selections include slow-cooked short ribs and oven-roasted chicken ratatouille. No matter the time of day, LPQ has your back (and stomach).
Rosetta Bakery: If Italian food is a favorite, then Rosetta Bakery is for you. The Italian bakery offers an assortment of savory and sweet fare to fit your mood. On the decadent side, patrons will find bombolone, almond cake, tiramisu and other mouthwatering bites. Pizzas and sandwiches make up most of the savory bites, including the King Rosetta (Prosciutto di Parma, arugula, swiss cheese and cherry tomatoes, or Italian cooked ham, lettuce, swiss cheese and tomatoes). Yup, it’s a monster sandwich.
Tap 42: The popular American gastropub is now open at Aventura. By the looks of it, it’s already off to a great start. Crowds come here to watch games, sling back some stiff drinks and nosh on elevated bar food like bacon and sweet corn guacamole, short rib beef sliders and chicken lettuce wraps. Calorie-counters need not worry: The restaurant has been adding healthier options such as an ahi tuna poke salad, a grilled salmon zen bowl and a simply grilled gulf snapper. Signature cocktails and beer galore make up most of the drink menu, which also includes draft cocktails. We’re partial to the Mule.
