The burger I ate was really tasty. But what I really liked were the sweet potato fries, definitely try those because they are amazing. I had a nice afternoon in Lincoln Road and a fun time with friends.

Excellent bookstore off the mall, but on the mall is their excellent cafe. The curried chicken salad was superb. Homemade soups, and excellent mango lemonade. On a busy mall, it was calm and quiet place to relax.

Limited seasonal menu from Chef Allen Susser (I still miss his now-closed Chef Allen’s in Aventura). Enjoyed the Sears burger (the restaurant is in a former department store) and the app seared mahi-mahi. The theater menu offers a choice of a 2 or 3 course...More
