The Mercato will include an area called the Caffé, with an espresso bar, plus a juice bar, salad bar, salumeria, a focacceria with fresh bread made daily and specialty Italian retail items in its 5,000 square foot space.
We have detailed photos and an opening date — December — for the three-story Italian food hall coming to Brickell City Centre.
La Centrale (pronounced Chen-TRAH-leh) will have 14 different dining spaces in its mammoth 40,000-square-foot space in the dazzling new mall. The Miami Herald covered its announcement in full in February.
