Closing Soon: della bowls
After seven years in business, guests have until July 24 to enjoy their plant-based della bowls, avocado toast and gluten-free treats.
Founder Della Heiman Goldkind made this decision after much careful consideration. She says, “I’ve worn two hats, as both the CEO and founder of The Doral Yard and della bowls, and have decided to place my focus entirely on The Doral Yard. While I’m sad to say goodbye to della bowls, I feel so proud of the amazing community we’ve built and the opportunity to have played a role in South Florida’s plant-based movement. The Doral Yard is thriving and we’re excited to share what’s coming next.”
Looking forward, The Doral Yard welcomes Pokekai. With current locations in Brickell and Orlando, Doral will soon have a taste of customizable poke bowls with hearty grains, sustainably-sourced proteins, and over 15 fresh toppings and sauces.
Pokekai is slated to open later this month in The Backyard of The Doral Yard.
The Yard team is also thrilled to welcome ¡Los Buenos! by the iconic Miami brand, Coyo Taco. The ¡Los Buenos! menu–also featured at Oasis Wynwood and Moxy South Beach, as well as a location in Porto, Portugal–will bring rajas con papa, chicken tinga, seared shrimp and other tacos, along with burritos, quesadillas and bocadillos like street corn and guacamole to The Doral Yard this August.
Later this summer, The Doral Yard is also excited to announce expanded coffee options for guests with a new Juan Valdez kiosk in The Hub. Savor lattes, cappuccinos, and delicious pastries very soon.
