Second Italian Food Hall At Saks Brickell City Centre Files For $6M Construction Permit

Construction permits have been filed to build a Casa Tua Cucina Northern Italian food hall on the first floor of the Saks Fifth Avenue at Brickell City Centre.

It will become one of two separate Italian food halls planned at the mall.

According to the permit, the new food hall will have 17,630 square feet of space, with a construction cost estimated at $5.83 million.

Brickell City Centre representatives have previously said that the Casa Tua will focus on northern Italian food, which is also confirmed by signs posted at the site.

On the third level of Saks, there will be a Casa Tua Wine Club, with a wine bar and restaurant.

At the opposite end of the mall, a three-story La Centrale Italian food hall is being built, with 38,000 square feet of space. Completion is set for fall.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m so happy to see some culinary diversity, but wouldn’t it be nice if one of these Italian food halls was an Asian food hall instead? Just imagine the rich flavors of India, Burma, Thailand, China, Vietnam, Korea, and Japan. Yum.

What about the Middle East, Turkey, Spanish and Portuguese?
Reality check is most people in Miami are not creative or adventurous when it comes to food. They are happy with a greasy croqueta and a pastelito de guayaba

Why insult a community’s food just to make a point about other food
What’s the different between a backlava and a guava pastelito
Or a croqueta and a kebbe?
Leant to express your point whithout offending others
Also French food would be nice there

I wasn’t trying to insult anyone or any food. I love pastelitos de guayaba and croquetas but for that to be the exclusive ubiquitous cafeteria staple is a bit boring.

Baklava is made with walnuts and almonds really delicious! Food diversity is progressive for any city

Interesting, I was just at Saks yesterday, very nicely done and I am sure this restaurant will be too. I also got a chance to walk up to CMX it looks done but no one there had any idea when it will open. The restaurant next to it was packed with people not bad for a Tuesday night.

Three Italian spots at BCC?? How about something from another interesting, tasty cuisine of the world? An authentic Chinese restaurant is desperately needed in Miami. Aren’t developers courting the Chinese and claim that they’ll be arriving soon? No better way to attract them by opening a fantastic place w/ dim sum and other Chinese delights!

Is Northern or Southern more “American” style?

Southern Italy is more similar to american style, much more pasta based dishes as well as usage of seafood. Northern has a lot more dishes of potato and rice, influenced by the trade from Euro and Asian neighbors.
