Hungry? Head for Kennedy Plaza

We’re lucky to have every imaginable kind of restaurant downtown—whether you want burgers, cupcakes, burritos or steak. This summer we have a few new additions right in the middle of Kennedy Plaza!

Stop by at lunchtime during the week for a taste of Jake’s Sweet Meats, Ma’s Kitchen, Mama Kim’s, De Las Olas Taqueria, and after work, Haven Bros. If you’re thirsty, you’ll also find Del’s and New England Lemonade on almost every corner. Enjoy!
