Time Out to open its first U.S. food hall concept in Miami Beach


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.

“Time Out Market brings the best of the city together under one roof: its best restaurants, bars and cultural experiences – wholly based on editorial curation,” says Time Out Market CEO Didier Souillat. “Our passion is to make high-quality fine dining affordable and accessible for all and a close connection with the city is at the heart of Time Out Market. Our first market in Lisbon – loved by locals and visitors alike – has been a major success story since it opened in 2014, so rolling out Time Out Market in great culinary and cultural cities around the world is a priority for us. Miami has a vibrant, diverse and thriving food and cultural scene – this really is a great city for us.”
Average meal including a non boozy drink per person will run around $20. Oh, and this isn’t your toss and go food hall either – no plastic disposables here. Fine china coupled with an allegedly all star list of chefs will create an affordable fine dining feast. Stay tuned for details on which chefs will be involved in this project, to be announced at 10 a.m. on October 3.
