Food halls in America are as old as 1743, when Faneuil Hall opened in Boston. And while pretty much every major metropolis has their own upscale food courts, Miami does not. That is about to change, with all sorts of food halls opening from La Centrale at Brickell City Centre to Grandview Public Market in West Palm. But not all food halls will be the same, especially the one opening in 2018 on Lincoln Road by Time Out. Yes, that Time Out, as in the guidebook, blog and magazine by the same name.
In 2018 Time Out Miami will debut its very own Time Out Market at 1601 Drexel Avenue on Miami Beach. Not the first of its kind, Time Out Market currently exists in Lisbon.
According to, well, Time Out Miami, the blog, “Time Out Market Miami is where you’ll go to taste food from the city’s best restaurants and top chefs, sip cocktails by award-winning mixologists and see stunning works of art by Miami’s rising talents. It’s going to be a mind-blowing showcase of the city, and we can’t wait for you to see it.”
The 17,474 sq foot space will seat 320 inside, 120 outside and feature 17 restaurants from ceviche and pizza to soup, salad, seafood, tacos, Asian, Cuban and probably Martian, too. There will also be three bars, a demo kitchen and a space dedicated to local art exhibitions.
