Before firing up the grill for burgers or trying to make authentic pad Thai, consider Ford’s Garage at Miromar Outlets for a savory selection of seven burgers (including one with peanut butter) or Thai Udon at University Village Shops & Dining as tasty alternatives without the kitchen cleanup.

            Eight restaurants at Miromar Outlets and University Village – more than one for every day of the week – are offering curbside pickup and contactless local delivery through popular apps like DoorDash, UberEats, BiteSquad, Grubhub and Postmates. Naples Flatbread at Miromar Outlets is also offering bulk groceries! Mellow Mushroom, Poke Fusion, Skillets, Slicers Hoagies and Smoothie King are also open and offering specials at University Village, just half a mile north of Miromar Outlets at Ben Hill Griffin and Estero parkways.

            “Most of these restaurants are locally owned small businesses that need our support,” said Jeff Staner, general manager of both shopping centers. “They’re providing jobs and doing what they love – making meals for their customers.”
