When the mood strikes to dine under open skies, there is no more scenic or enticing choice than Aventura Mall’s exterior courtyard. Flanked by critically acclaimed international restaurants, the patio spins its special cachet from the synergy between immersive art, exquisite landscaping, and the mingling of global cultures.
Inspired offerings worthy of the most discerning palates are prepared by such award winning chefs as Pubbelly Sushi’s Chef Jose Mendin, Estiatorio Ornos’s Chef Michael Mina and CVI.CHE 105’s Chef Juan Chipoco. Greek delicacies, Peruvian specialties, Japanese-Latin fusion, and the tempting delights at Israeli-Mediterranean restaurant Motek and whimsical dining destination PANI present an eclectic symphony of flavors you will wish to keep replaying. Whether the occasion is a brunch with friends or a romantic candlelit dinner, Aventura Mall’s alfresco dining is an experience unto itself.
Venturing above the Outdoor Courtyard, experience mouthwatering dishes, craft beers and cocktails abound at Tap 42 Craft Kitchen & Bar, which offers elevated views of the Aventura Slide Tower, LOVE Sculpture, and Gorillas in the Mist art installations. For a cozier approach, nearby Serafina’s outdoor pergola is the ideal backdrop for enjoying a taste of “la dolce vita” in the form of authentic Italian dishes and wines from around the globe.
