Diners must take a photo of their receipt and complete the steps at dinedelights.com to redeem. Brookfield Properties also is donating $10 to the Feeding America COVID-19 Response Fund, now through June 30, for every Instagram post that shows a meal from a Mizner Park restaurant using #DineDelightDonate.
