After 18 months of construction, the newly expanded and renovated portions of Dolphin Mall will open to shoppers on Tuesday, September 15, 2015. The mall’s new features include a state-of-the-art parking deck, as well as a new valet area that will greet those looking to dine at the five new restaurants slated for the center, including BRIO Tuscan Grille and Miami-Dade’s first Kona Grill opening that day.
Also worth noting — because we here at Miami.com know you’re going to love this one? On-trend and wallet-friendly retail giant H&M is slated to open this Fall, too.
“Dolphin Mall is about to become more distinctive as we celebrate the grand opening of our new restaurant plaza,” Dolphin Mall General Manager Pete Marrero says. “This project underscores our commitment to providing customers with a truly convenient and enjoyable shopping and dining experience.”
In addition to BRIO Tuscan Grille and Kona Grill, the center’s 32,000 square feet of new restaurant space will welcome Miami-Dade’s first Cabo Flats Cantina & Tequila Bar in November. Burger & Beer Joint is projected to open later this year and a fifth restaurant will debut in 2016.
Rounding out the renovations are updates to the outdoor Ramblas Plaza, including new furniture, planters, ornamental shading and LED lighting to enhance the beauty of the surrounding grounds.
