Things To Do

La Centrale wants you to eat in a yurt for the holidays. Time to get festive and stuff your face.

Pretend it's not 90 degrees out and enter a traditional Italian winter wonderland.

Happy (almost) holidays! Do you want to celebrate with dinner in a yurt?

La Centrale thinks you do.

The Italian food hall in Brickell City Centre is getting ready to open a Winter Village Pop-Up that includes holiday-inspired fare, a brand new cocktail menu – and a chance to dine in one of the aforementioned yurts.

(A yurt, if you don’t know, is a portable round tent used by ancient nomads and also sometimes hippies.)

The idea is you make your reservations, then step from the crippling humidity of Miami into an enchanting holiday-themed yurt, where you will indulge in Italian merriment that involves a tagliere board loaded with Italian cheese and meats, cheese and chocolate fondue and the classic dessert, panettone.


Here’s what you get to drink:

  • Chai rye winter punch with bullet rye, chai Demerara and house-made almond milk
  • Mulled rose with cinnamon, orange, ginger and Tongan vanilla, served warm or chilled
  • Warm apple cider with raw apple juice and cinnamon-maple syrup

(Pro tip: If none of these festive beverages quench your thirst at La Centrale, there’s Enoteca, the entire third floor of the food hall, which is dedicated to wine.)


La Centrale will set up three yurts on its second floor. Two of them seat two to four guests; the larger yurt can seat up to 12 guests. Take your pick.
