NAPLES, FL., -March 9, 2022 – OASIS The Kitchen Lounge will be opening in the Town Center, a shopping and dining destination within the master-planned community of Ave Maria. The full-service restaurant and bar will feature a versatile menu of small bites, salads, pastas, poke bowls, burgers, steaks, seafood, and classic cocktails in a beautifully designed atmosphere.  OASIS The Kitchen Lounge is a joint venture between Ave Maria residents and restaurateurs, Phong Ho and Michael Jaenvega.

“We are excited to bring a casual dining restaurant and cocktail lounge with a variety of food types and drink offerings to Ave Maria,” states Phong Ho. “OASIS is called a kitchen because the eclectic menu will be constantly evolving with new choices and limited specials. My partner, Michael Jaenvega, of Martin Fierro Steakhouse in Naples and his family will bring a Latin flavor to the food.”  Guests will be able to scan a QR code on the table to order which allows for faster service and checkout. 

The 2,500 square-foot restaurant will seat approximately 95 patrons inside and include outdoor patio seating for up to 60 patrons.  “We wanted to create an environment that incorporated all the elements that represent an oasis,” comments Jorge Arroyo, interior designer of the restaurant. “A place where guests can escape and have a fun time, good food and enjoy the ambience. Nature was brought to the indoor spaces and defined the creativity of all the mixed elements. You will find industrial touches, which represent the desert, the river accent that decor the bar and the wood and greenery elements are some of the spectacular fixtures you will see as soon you come in.”

Located at 5072 Annunciation Circle, Suite 103, OASIS The Kitchen Lounge will be open every day from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. On Fridays and Saturdays, the owners are looking to keep the bar area open until 11 p.m. with a limited menu. For more information, please visit or call (239) 658-5938.
