Brickell City Centre is a gorgeous shopping arena, and it’s got a host of great tenants, but come December it will boast Miami’s first Italian food hall, La Centrale. Beyond the 14 different dining spaces (spanning 40,000 square feet), Le Centrale will also feature an all-day café with espresso bar; traditional Italian bakery; savory mozzarella and fresh raw bars; prepared meals; an Italian chocolate and gelato eatery; a cocktail and aperitivo bar with live performance stage; and La Cucina, a kitchen event space for cooking classes, book signings, guest chef takeovers, wine tastings and, well, food events in general. All of the ingredients and products used for the dishes found in Le Centrale’s restaurants will be available for purchase.

There will be an entrance on each level of Brickell City Centre’s three floors, as well as two ground-level entrances facing 6th street. It all sounds extremely promising. Some renderings and descriptions of a few of the culinary delights:

FIRST FLOOR:

MERCADO is the epicenter of La Centrale’s grab-and-go options. It will feature an espresso bar, juice bar, rosticceria, fritti bar, salad bar, salumeria, a focacceria with fresh bread made daily, a formidable selection of formaggio, and a cafe adjacent to the mercado with specialty Italian retail items. It covers over 5,000 square feet.

PIZZA E PASTA, a rustic pizza and pasta eatery serving authentic Neapolitan pizza cooked in traditional wood fired ovens imported from Naples. Artisanal pasta-makers can be seen at their craft through La Centrale’s Pastificio window.

SECOND FLOOR:

PESCE, inspired by the region of Liguria, promises “the freshest fish South Florida and the Mediterranean have to offer.

CARNE exudes the rustic décor of the Chianti region, a true Italian Macelleria, with meats cooked in a traditional wood-fired grill. The traditional hand-made Tuscan terracotta tile on the ceiling and floor was sourced directly from the Tuscan village of Greve in Chianti, famous for its centuries-old terracotta production.

ENOTECA, a wine cellar on the third floor, will feature a curated collection of Italian labels to take home or to sip in the tasting room. The third floor also houses a private dining room and La Cucina.
