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.
Every day, a new restaurant opens in Miami … or at least it seems like it. Given Miami’s fierce food scene, odds are they won’t last. It takes a lot for a restaurant to withstand the test of time and the city’s fickle food audience. Salumeria 104 has been a Midtown staple for years, and unlike other restaurants in the area, it’s succeeding — so much so that it’s expanded to the space next door (and to Coral Gables).
That growth says a lot. But despite it being open for a while now, we never actually visited Salumeria 104 until last month. We regret not visiting sooner.
When it comes to food, Aventura Mall has been pulling out all the stops lately. Not only did it open a new food hall (Treats) on the third floor, but the mall also opened a new wing that features some big names in the culinary world. One of those names is Serafina.
The New York Italian spot has branched out of the Big Apple, setting down roots in Miami to make our food scene all the better. We’re always hungry for great pizza and pasta, and that’s exactly what you’ll find at Serafina Miami.
It’s been a long time coming, but La Centrale is finally open inside Brickell City Centre. We’ve been eagerly awaiting the three-floor Italian food hall, which was slated to open late last year but Miami ruins everything. Now that it’s (almost) fully operational, we got to peek inside the venue’s first floor and eat our weight in carbs. Was it worth the wait? Yes x1000.
Italian food is our favorite cuisine. We just love the warm, fuzzy feeling you get after enjoying a heaping bowl of pasta or a delectable pizza. At Prezzo in Boca, that feeling was everywhere.
