The best of the city under one roof: Time Out Market Miami adds Jeremy Ford, Michael Beltran, Alberto Cabrera and more to its roster of top chefs and restaurateurs

By Time Out PR

Time Out Market Miami, the food and cultural market based wholly on editorial curation, reveals today the latest additions to its line-up of some of the city’s top chefs and restaurateurs. Acclaimed and much loved culinary talents such as Jeremy Ford, Michael Beltran and Alberto Cabrera will join previously announced leading chefs when Time Out Market Miami opens at the end of 2018.

Located at 1601 Drexel Avenue, just off Miami Beach’s Lincoln Road, Time Out Market will bring the best of the city together under one roof: its best restaurants, bars and cultural experiences.

Here is the line-up of the latest chefs and restaurateurs to join the curated mix of 17 kitchens at Time Out Market Miami, offering an incredible range of local high-quality food, affordable and accessible for all:

  • Jeremy Ford: This critically acclaimed winner of Top Chef Season 13 will add to his existing repertoire with new Korean flavors at Time Out Market Miami. Diners can expect nothing less than exceptional, artistic dishes and intense, delicious flavors known from his celebrated Stubborn Seed in Miami South Beach. Jeremy’s career has taken him through haute cuisine, Michelin starred kitchens and being chef de cuisine at Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Matador Room—a wealth of experience he now combines masterfully with his coolness and ‘badass cooking’.

  • Michael Beltran: Miami born and bred, Michael Beltran has garnered regional and national acclaim, including a Chef of the Year nomination and Restaurant of the Year for Ariete which he turned into a city destination in no time. He will present Leña, a meat concept at Time Out Market Miami, with a menu featuring ‘smoked short rib with grilled escarole,’  ‘smoked half chicken with grilled fennel and orange’ and sharing dishes on the weekends. A classically trained chef who has honed his skills under Miami legends such as Michael Schwartz and Norman Van Aken, Michael Beltran is now known for preparing classics using local, seasonal produce.

  • Alberto Cabrera: Miami native, but Cuban to the core, Alberto Cabrera will bring his traditional Cuban cuisine with American influences to Time Out Market. As with everything he does, his cooking at Time Out Market Miami's The Local Cuban will be inspired by time spent in the kitchen with his family as a child and by his career in the kitchens of some of Miami’s top chefs and his own restaurants like much loved Bread + Butter. Alberto has long been a force on Miami’s dining scene with his creations often celebrated amongst the city’s best dishes and in Time Out Market, he plans to serve up his award-winning Cuban sandwich, ‘media noche croquetas,’ and other mouth-watering dishes.

  • 33 Kitchen: Named Best Peruvian Restaurant in Miami in 2016, at Time Out Market 33 Kitchen will serve diners Peruvian-inspired dishes that combine modern techniques with pristine ingredients. ‘Tuna tiradito’, ‘ceeviche de corvina’ and ‘crispy octopus’ are just some of the delights Sebastian Fernandez wants to offer.

  • Miami Smokers: An urban smokehouse started by Andres Barrientos and James Bowers, Miami Smokers will be debuting its first Charcuterie Bar. The space will be dedicated to serving a selection of whole hog cured meats.

  • Stephen’s Deli: Stephen’s Deli is a spin-off of Stephen’s Delicatessen—Miami’s oldest and only New York style deli in the area, in operation since 1954—which Matt Kuscher took over in 2017 and which he will bring to Time Out Market Miami. It will be Matt’s second locale at the market.

Didier Souillat, CEO of Time Out Market, said:

“We are dedicated to making Time Out Market Miami a must-visit destination for food and culture lovers. That’s why we are incredibly proud to open with such an impressive, unmatched line-up of hugely talented chefs and restaurateurs representing the very best of the city. They are all recognized and loved by locals and are sure to attract visitors to the city.

“Time Out Market is unlike anything else—it is a food and cultural market based on editorial curation. The democratization of fine dining, enabling chefs to experiment with new ideas and concepts, giving local talent an opportunity to showcase their skills and creativity is at the heart of everything we do. It is truly exciting to bring new culinary and cultural experiences to this neighborhood and to give people another fantastic reason to come to Miami South Beach.”


Time Out Market Miami is following the wildly successful culinary phenomenon Time Out Market Lisbon which opened in 2014 and is now the most visited attraction in the country with 3.6 million visitors in 2017; new Time Out Markets are also set to open in New York, Chicago and Boston.

Across 17,500 sq ft, Time Out Market Miami will feature 17 kitchens, a demonstration kitchen, three bars offering cocktails from award-winning mixologists and an art space showcasing stunning art works by rising talent.

After exploring and sampling a variety of dishes—served on chinaware with flatware—from the surrounding kitchens, family and friends come together to enjoy their meals at communal tables in the center of Time Out Market. The average food check per person for dinner will be approximately $20.

Further chefs and restaurateurs as well as local artists for the art space will be announced soon.
