Miami is known for its eternal vacation vibes. Whether you prefer to spend your days indulging in a delicious meal outdoors, exploring art or activating your adrenaline, our Outdoor Courtyard is an ideal South Florida spot, welcoming you to grab a seat.
Here are some of the top ways to enjoy our Outdoor Courtyard:
The Outdoor Courtyard features fantastic views of Aventura Mall’s growing collection of contemporary art, each piece serving as a beautiful photo opportunity. The Arts Aventura Mall collection has grown to more than 20 pieces over the last decade, and the Outdoor Courtyard serves as a dreamy backdrop to enjoy Robert Indiana’s iconic LOVE sculpture, Tom Otterness’s Tree of Knowledge, Gorillas in the Mist and, of course, the Aventura Slide Tower.
Looking for more fun? Gorillas in the Mist by Nikolai and Simon Haas welcomes guests (and their pups!) to channel their youthful playfulness. Marrying the tranquility of water with the playfulness of wildlife, the brothers created the statue to signify “the roles that certain people can play: a partner, a good friend, and a child.” The interactive fountain is an excellent stop for families looking to engage with art.
From orchestrated brunches with your besties to a date night on a candle-lit table, you can curate your own outdoor experience at our Outdoor Courtyard, which is teeming with delectable dining options and scenic patio space. Sip on a refreshing cocktail, savor a fusion of foreign flavors, or bite into a sweet South American confection. The courtyard offers the perfect ambiance to experience Miami’s culinary melting pot while soaking up that iconic Florida sunshine.
Pubbelly Sushi is the ideal spot for sushi fans with admiration for the unexpected. Crafted by five-time James Beard Foundation Award Nominee Chef Jose Mendín, the menu features unique mash-ups combining Latin spices and Japanese classics. Stop by on a Sunday for the restaurant’s tasty pork belly chilaquiles and a sake-infused cafe con leche.
Admired for its flavorful Israeli-Mediterranean fare and kosher-style cooking, family-owned Motek is the newest restaurant to join our Outdoor Courtyard, inviting patrons to transport themselves to the middle east via authentic dishes such as falafel, hummus, shawarma, malawach and more. Offering brunch, lunch, and dinner, as well as sweets and coffee, Motek’s menu features plates both big and small, making it a great spot for shared meals.
Alfresco dining is the norm in Europe, where tables line streets and locals savor dinner conversation as much as the cuisine. Transport yourself to Greece when you visit Estiatorio Ornos, chef Michael Mina’s Mykonos-inspired concept. Luxuriate in the restaurant’s spacious 600-square-foot patio as you enjoy the critically acclaimed fare.
To commemorate the perfect patio weather, snap a pic of PANI’s Instagram-worthy creations. The Argentinian restaurant – recently deemed one of Yelp’s Top Girliest Restaurants in Miami – purveys whimsical desserts and cocktails that are just as tasty as they are photogenic – but trust us when we say you don’t want to miss the brunch (and Royal Tea Service)!
Get a traditional taste of South American at CVI.CHE 105. The seafood spot is the ultimate destination for fresh ceviche, a seafood dish that originated in Peru. CVI.CHE 105’s patio has a paradisal vibe that’s ideal for a relaxed lunch with a view.
If you’re a fan of CVI.CHE 105, you’ll love chef Juan Chipoco’s other creation. Pollos & Jarras, also located in the courtyard, features authentic Peruvian barbecue and spicy dishes from the Lima-born restauranteur.
Chef-driven outdoor dining, spectacular views, and inspiring art – it’s all here at Aventura Mall.
