Miami Worldcenter Announces First Retail Tenants

Miami Worldcenter has announced its first retail tenants.

The first tenants at Worldcenter will include:

  • Maple & Ash, a steakhouse from Chicago
  • etta, a neighborhood restaurant centered around a wood-fired hearth, also from Chicago
  • Laurel, a French brasserie with Cuban influence by James Beard award winning Miami Chef Michael Beltran’s Ariete Hospitality Group
  • El Vecino, a high-end first-class cigar bar by Ariete

“These restaurants exemplify the quality of the tenants and the experience we are curating for Miami Worldcenter’s residents and visitors,” said Nitin Motwani, Managing Partner of Miami Worldcenter Associates.

The four new food and beverage outlets will occupy a total of 30,400 square feet of space.

Maple & Ash will be located along World Square at the corner of Miami Worldcenter’s 7th Street promenade and 1st Avenue Northeast, and will occupy 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, with ground floor and second floor seating.

Etta will be located along the eastern side of the 7th Street Promenade, with approximately 11,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space across two levels.

Laurel will occupy 2,800 square feet of indoor and outdoor space on the ground floor of the Caoba Miami Worldcenter apartment tower, at the corner of the 7th Street promenade and Northeast 1st Avenue.

El Vecino will occupy approximately 1,600 square feet of indoor and outdoor space joining Laurel on the ground floor of Miami Worldcenter’s Caoba apartment tower.

Approximately 150,000 square feet of retail at Worldcenter has been completed with tenant build-out work set to commence in 2021, and another 130,000 square feet is currently under construction and nearing delivery.

Additional tenants will be announced in the coming weeks and months, Motwani said.

Marina Blue better get rid of that Subway and Mana Poke and turn them into a nice coffee shop. Pucci pizza is ok but we need fancier venues in Park West.

900 Biscayne should get rid of the nail salon then… a restaurant would be better there plus it would be nice to have something across the street also, just by the park entrance. Maybe even a floating option on the slip.

Living in a city allows for all kinds of food; Miami needs more fast eating options for those who work to service the city or those who want a quick cheaper meal.

They can go to Bayside Market for now but hopefully it gets a bit fancier too.

Isn’t there like three italian food halls in the downtown area? We need some decent asian food. Can’t rely on Lun Yai forever.

Yeah but Eataly is really nice and much needed in this area because I live here and I’m Italian lol. Jokes aside, I think we need Eataly but also nice Asian options. The place is basically empty so there is room for everything, no need to argue haha.

Casa Tua is just an overrated deconstructed restaurant, and La Moon Centrale or whatever it’s called now is a disgusting joke of latin food marketed as Italian.

We need a REAL Italian market/food hall, something that true Italians will shop at. Eataly would be a great start and easy. I’m tired of driving all the way to Doris’ in Broward for a quality Italian market.

You wanna know the Irony in all these comments. La Centrale was owned Italians from Italy and used much better ingredients then Casa Tua does but because everyone always was at Casa Tua because of its locations in the mall the Italians sold the business Before the pandemic. You’ll never Guess who bought the business Asian investors 🤓

Uniqlo is one of the largest fast-fashion retailers in the world, with a similar global revenue as Zara or H&M. Uniqlo has a cult following and this would be their first location in South Florida. They would draw a lot of traffic as a shopping destination.

“a French brasserie with Cuban influence”? I don’t really see those two cuisines as complimentary TBH, but I’ll try anything once. Or twice if I was too drunk to remember the first time. Sometimes even three times.

No I likely think – or surely know, rather – that French food is one of the world’s most sophisticated, complex and flavorful cuisines whereas Cuban food is one of the most simplistic, basic and bland. Hence the comment about them not being complimentary.

No! That’s why people who work on those restaurants have a job !! 😠
Because people that have money, or no that much, still have the right to enjoy nice restaurants

P.S
At least in Anerica, for the moment, people on the bottom 50% have the opportunity to move to the top 50% by hard work … not by complaining about being a victim and living out of government!
And yes!! I like seeing girls dancing and tweaking in balconies 😃
