Dadeland Eats: Bobby Flay's Burger Palace, Balans, Others Coming

Bobby Flay is bringing his casual burger restaurant to Dadeland Mall this fall. The restaurant is part of the Kendall shopping center's expansion, which will also include four other restaurants, a series of shops (including a Microsoft store), and a parking lot expansion.

Bobby's Burger Palace, like the name implies, is a fast-casual burger restaurant that features a selection of burgers, salads, sandwiches, and salads.

Burgers, many named for cities, are made from certified Angus beef or ground turkey.

Each burger can also be made with a chicken breast.

Offerings include Philadelphia, Dallas, Buffalo and Miami burgers. The latter is topped with ham, cheese, pickles, mustard, and mayo, then pressed. Though prices may fluctuate in Miami, the offerings come in well under $10 each.

Currently there are over a dozen Bobby's Burger Palaces in the northeast. The Dadeland location is the first restaurant in Florida.

Other restaurants opening as part of the expansion include:

Aoki Teppanyaki

Guests can dine at one of sixteen teppanyaki tables. The restaurant, styled to look like a Japanese village, will also have a full shouchi/sake bar and regular indoor/outdoor seating.

Earls Kitchen + Bar

The casual chain restaurant serves beer, burgers, pizzas, sandwiches, and salads.


This is the fifth location in Miami for this small London-based chain that's known for its solid bistro food and oversized portions.

Aroma Espresso Bar

This New York coffee bar features an on-site bakery and gourmet coffee beverages.

This is the fourth Aroma Espresso bar in south Florida, and the first one to open off the beach.

All restaurants are scheduled to open sometime in the Fall of 2013.
