OPENING DATE SET

MIAMICENTRAL’S CENTRAL FARE MARKETPLACE HAS NEW FOOD TENANTS AND AN OPENING DATE

The new culinary collective located at Brightline’s MiamiCentral Station will open Thursday, April 4, 2019 bringing more food options than ever before to the heart of Downtown Miami. 

MIAMI, FL. – Date – Deciding what to eat in downtown Miami is about to get a whole lot harder, but at least that grueling gastro-guessing can be done under one roof. Central Fare marketplace, the exciting new culinary command central in the heart of downtown, is officially opening at MiamiCentral on Thursday April 4, 2019. The beautifully designed dining destination will open in phases, offering the city a new geographically desirable place to grab every single meal of the day, not to mention snacks, drinks and desserts, too.

Located on the mezzanine level of MiamiCentral next door to Brightline (soon to be Virgin Trains USA), Central Fare is a fantastic fusion of food, beverage and specialty goods all in one spectacularly designed location. The buzz of the marketplace as you head upstairs to the second level is an immediate draw, when guests are greeted with sweeping views of Downtown Miami through floor to ceiling windows on one side and various food and beverage vendors on the other side.

“Gone are the days that you have to wonder where to grab lunch or happy hour if you have a meeting in Downtown Miami,” said Patrick Goddard, Brightline’s President. “We are so excited to fill the void in this area by offering ample dining options that will keep guests wanting to come back.”

The state-of-the-art, high tech transit-oriented development, MiamiCentral, spans six Downtown Miami city blocks, and not only features Brightline’s Miami Station, but also has connectivity to Metromover, Metrorail, and future Tri-Rail service – making Central Fare the most connected dining destination in the area.

Central Fare will feature an array of options including grab-and-go counters and full-service sit-down restaurants and bars. The full list of updated drool-worthy occupants is enough to make your stomach grumble:

  • La Estación American Brasserie by Juvia Group, a full-service bistro concept, that serves as Central Fare’s anchor restaurant at MiamiCentral. The 240-seat, 10,000-square-foot restaurant and bar, will feature four private event spaces and a vast open kitchen.
  • World Famous House of Mac, Miami’s famed food truck concept known for their unique spin on traditional comfort food and succulent delights such as jerk salmon pasta, fried chicken and pumpkin spice waffles, and their signature “world famous” mac & cheese.
  • Buck’s Galettes & Crepes, originating from Brittany, France, offers wholesome, nutritious and well-balanced fare showcasing their all-organic crepes and galettes (savory crepes). Buck’s puts an emphasis on their state-of-the-art crepe maker, gluten-free & vegan options, and usage of locally-farmed produce and travel-friendly packaging.
  • Delicatessen Patagonia, inspired by Argentinian flavor and traditional food, these empanadas are full of fresh ingredients hand-picked to created delicious combos that everyone enjoys.
  • Bio Bio Gelato, authentic Italian gelato that combines 100% certified organic ingredients with the artisanship that goes into making this traditional Italian favorite.
  • Art de Vivre, a wine bar and café that is a spinoff of the Château L’Hospitalet L’Art de Vivre restaurant in Narbonne-Plage, France. It takes the fast-casual elements of French wine and Mediterranean cuisine and transforms them into a lively wine bar and café with grab and go food, as well as a selection of beverages including biodynamic, organic, sustainable wines, local & French craft bottled beer, gourmet coffee & tea, and much more. 

Other confirmed tenants currently include the already opened Parliament Coffee & Espresso Bar, Rosetta Bakery and 800º Woodfired Kitchen that is set to open this summer.
