There’s no time like the present to indulge in a variety of chef-curated, three-course meals – especially when those meals are given a special dash of ‘Miami Spice!’
From August 1st through September 30th, you can eat your way through three of our top Aventura Mall restaurants participating in Miami Spice Month, including Michael Mina’s Estiatorio Ornos, Jose Mendín’s Pubbelly Sushi and Serafina Miami – all of which cover an array of global cuisines, from Greek-Mediterranean and Italian to Latin-Asian fusion.
Let’s dig into some menu offerings, shall we?
Pubbelly Sushi Aventura
Pubbelly Sushi brings an eclectic, hyper-creative menu of Latin-Asian fusion by Founding Chef Partner José Mendín, a five-time James Beard Award Semi-Finalist for “Best Chef, Southeast.”
Get ready to fill your belly and satisfy your sushi-loving soul with Pubbelly’s Miami Spice lunch and dinner menus, which are available Monday through Thursday. The tough part will be choosing your appetizer, main course, and entrée – so you might as well keep going back for more!
From Nori Butter Edamame and Lobster Donuts to Crispy Hamachi Tartare, Short Rib Bao Buns, Miso Bread Pudding and more, your mouth will be watering from start to finish. Don’t skip out on Pubbelly’s cocktails, some of which are served in the restaurant’s iconic funky cat glasses.
Escape to the Mediterranean at Estiatorio Ornos, where you can enjoy an authentic three-course meal – from a $28 lunch (offered Monday through Friday) to a $60 dinner (offered through Thursday) – that will transport your taste buds to Greece. Choose from mouthwatering appetizers, main dishes, and desserts, including beloved Ornos dishes like Grilled Octopus, Moussaka, Wild Mushroom Pasta, Lavraki, and Baklava – each of which will have you feeling as though you’re eating in yiayia’s kitchen.
Led by award-winning Chef Michael Mina and Las Vegas’ dynamic duo – Girair “Jerry” Goumroian and Chef Nikolaos Georgousis, the 160-seat restaurant sits in Aventura Mall’s lush Outdoor Courtyard and features South Florida’s first fish sommelier.
With a $28 lunch menu and two dinner menus ranging from $45 to $60, Serafina is an ideal place to experience a taste of ‘la dolce vita.’ The famed New York Italian restaurant is beloved for its authentic cuisine, creative cocktails, and global wine list. Enjoy classics and signature dishes such as the Eggplant Rollatini, Calamari with Zucchini, Organic Chicken Parmesan and more. And, of course, don’t skip out on something sweet (gelato and cannolis, anyone?)
Pro tip: grab a seat in the outdoor pergola to enjoy dining among the lush landscape.
