Must-Try Dining Destinations

It’s time to celebrate! Restaurants in Miami-Dade County recently re-opened their dining rooms for indoor service. Whether you’re in the mood for soul-satisfying pasta or a decadent dessert, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite dishes that you can enjoy next time you’re at Aventura Mall.

Pubbelly Sushi

Indulge in dessert for dinner with Pubbelly’s new Sushi Cones. Try the Maine Lobster Cone with kimchee mayo, yuzu, jalapeño and tempura flakes, or opt for the Tuna, Salmon or Hamachi cones. One thing is for sure, each option is packed with flavorful ingredients that will leave you wanting more.

The Waygu Beef Tartare roll is served with a mouthwatering Truffle Poached Egg dip. This fan favorite pairs perfectly with wine or sake; just ask your server for a recommendation!

Tap 42 Craft Kitchen + Bar

If you’re in the mood for something on the healthier side, try the Grilled Salmon Zen Bowl. The combination of perfectly seasoned salmon, pan-fried brown rice and stir-fried veggies, topped with toasted sesame seeds and a truffle miso glaze will satisfy your taste buds down to the last bite.

Lighter dishes, such as the Chicken Lettuce Wraps, can deliver just as much flavor and satisfaction as heartier ones. Korean-style marinated chicken complements the sweet soy glaze and crunchy sesame seeds to create a tasty and fulfilling dish. Pro tip: pair each butter lettuce cup with a different sauce to keep it fresh and flavorful!

Divieto Ristorante

Trade your finger food for delicious Italian fare courtesy of Divieto Ristorante. You can’t go wrong with the Gnocchi Formaggio. The flavors of delicate potato dumplings tossed with spinach, roasted red pepper and artichokes are brought together by a savory cream sauce and melted mozzarella cheese. You could say each dish is “molto bene!”

If you’re looking for another exciting dish to try, dive into the Seafood Ravioli. Each pasta pillow is stuffed with lobster and shrimp, then tossed in a heavenly mix of yellow pepper cream sauce, zucchini and cherry tomatoes. A flame-grilled half lobster tail completes the entrée.

End your meal on a sweet note with the Caramello al Latte. The moist sponge cake is soaked in three different types of milk and covered with dulce de leche. Candied walnuts complete this must-try dish, which is part of Divieto’s impressive dessert menu.

The Cheesecake Factory

If you’re like us and plan your meal at The Cheesecake Factory around dessert, we’ve got you covered. There is a plethora of flavor-packed salads to choose from that will ensure you can still enjoy an extra-large slice of cheesecake or another delicious dessert from the restaurant’s elaborate menu.

Many people know about the restaurant’s extensive array of decadent cheesecake flavors, but its specialty desserts are equally as good. Try the Fresh Strawberry Shortcake, featuring warm “sandwiches” topped with fresh whipped cream and sprinkled with sugar crystals.

Bella Luna

A simmering medley of mixed fish, radicchio, arugula, rice, clam broth and tomato, Bella Luna’s Zuppa Mare E Monti is a standout menu item that is best enjoyed with a glass of pinot grigio.

For those who like to deviate from Italian comfort food, the Grilled Octopus is a must-try dish. Served with mixed greens, chickpeas and a zesty tomato dressing, this plate is as delicious as it is colorful.

No matter which restaurant or dish you choose, be sure to bring your appetite!
