In Culture Crusaders
If the last decade could have had a theme, we would have made Miami’s “food hall” since over a dozen have opened around our hometown in just a few short years. Located in the Virgin MiamiCentral train hub is Central Fare, one of the hidden secrets of the food hall scene with a sleek, modern twist featuring some of Miami’s homegrown favorites slinging their best dishes for commuters and curious foodies both. Since food halls seem to get overwhelming (talk about decision fatigue), we’ve broken it all down for you:
Many people don’t know this, but the original configuration of a crepe (or galette as purists would urge to call it) is made with buckwheat flour, making these delicious French classics naturally gluten-free. At Bucks Crepes, we suggest to stick to the traditional: Cheese and ham with a fried egg on top. France in a most satisfying plate. Okay, fine, and throw in a dessert one too (you can’t go wrong with caramel or nutella).
CAO BAKERY & CAFE
It’s no lie that Cuban cuisine is a pivotal pillar for Miami’s food scene, and CAO Bakery has been not-so-silently taking over the ranks as one of Miami’s new beloved favorites all over town. Most shoppers will head here for a quick bite and a cafecito boost, but we suggest to play the long game and not miss their version of the Cuban Sandwich, as perfect as they come.
From the brains and tastebuds at the culinary powerhouse Juvia Group comes a new American Brasserie inside Central Fare, La Estacion. While it might not be as quick as some of the other traditional food hall-style pop-ups, the sweeping restaurant still deserves your attention. If you’re on a budget, we suggest heading there during happy hour where things like ribs, pizza, sliders, and calamari are less than $10. If you want to splurge, head there for brunch or try the prix fixe menu.
