The original mall's Hurricane Food Court, one of 2 culinary complexes in the meandering marketplace. Its patrons were entertained with a whooshing wind -big blow- sound effect...which might have hit a bit too close to home in the aftermath of Andrew, in August 1992. The name of the U-shaped restaurant row was changed to Garden Food Court as part of a 2004 renovation.
