Miami’s culinary scene continues to explode with the announcement of two food halls that are both expected to open in the coming months.
First, a marketplace called 1-800-LUCKY will open its doors in Wynwood later this month at 143 Northwest 23rd Street. It’s located next to The Butcher Shop and sits a block away from Coyo Taco; whose team of Sven Vogtland and Alan Drummond, in partnership with Gaby Chiriboga; launched the Asian-themed market.
The 10,000-square-foot space will house a variety of food vendors, including Taiyaki’s Japanese fish-shaped ice cream cones, in addition to a karaoke bar, a small theater for private events, LUCKY Records, and the neighborhood’s first convenience store. The design was inspired by “the pop industrial look of the 80’s,” per the press release, utilizing materials like iron, concrete, neon lights and vinyl.
Next we have Treats Food Hall opening this winter in Aventura Mall. Among their list of nearly a dozen vendors is Figs by Todd English, Shake Shack, and Luke’s Lobster. It’ll be located on the third floor of the mall’s 315,000-square-foot expansion wing, which also offers a terrace.
Outside the new space will be a 93-foot installation known as the Aventura Slide Tower, which was created by Carsten Höller and will allow visitors to actually whirl down the mammoth artwork. Additionally, The Haas Brothers created a water sculpture called Gorillas in the Midst, depicting three large-scale bronze gorillas and four bronze trees.
