If waiting for news on what’s cooking at Time Out Market Miami was beginning to make you hangry, we promise the next lineup of rockstar chefs was worth it.
Joining Time Out Market’s genius team we told you about last fall is a skilled bunch who’ve collectively appeared on television, won awards, revived a culinary institution and turned Cuban food on its head in Miami. Here’s who and what is making their mark on Time Out Market—Miami’s first editorially curated food and cultural destination—when it opens early 2019.
Check out the concept our editors are currently curating for you.
Jeremy Ford: The Top Chef winner behind the critically acclaimed restaurant Stubborn Seed, and formerly of Matador Room, delves further into Asian cuisine with a new Korean concept. If you know Ford, you’ll know lots of delicate flavors, splashy presentations and Instagrammable dishes are to come.
Michael Beltran: Ariete’s driving force introduces Leña, a meat-centric spot that touts items like short rib with grilled escarole, smoked half-chicken and loads of other juicy options to wow Miami’s carnivores. Judging by Beltran’s signature chug burger—which tops nearly every burger list in the city, including ours—grilling season will be a year-round thing.
Alberto Cabrera: The Cuban-American chef, who helmed now-shuttered Cuban gastropub Bread + Butter in Coral Gables, brings his favorite family recipes, plus several new favorites, to Time Out Market’s Cuban spot. The yet-to-be-named concept will be the place to score Cubanos, media noche croquetas and other mouthwatering Latin dishes.
33 Kitchen: For one of Miami’s best Peruvian restaurants, the end was actually the start of something new. 33 Kitchen, which closed its Coconut Grove outpost in 2017, continues at Time Out Market Miami as chef Sebastian Fernandez brings signatures like tuna tiradito and crispy octopus to South Beach.
Miami Smokers: If you’ve had a BLT or any sort of bacon product in Miami in the last few years, chances are it was done by Andres Barrientos and James Bowers of this urban smokehouse. There’s going to be some of that and more cured meats when the duo debuts their first charcuterie bar.
Stephen’s Deli: Hialeah’s oldest New York-style deli, Stephen’s Delicatessen, reemerges as a hip deli with an outpost at the market (Matt Kuscher’s second at TOM). Expect addictive sandwiches, pastrami and other NYC classics.
A roster that includes a James Beard nominee and a TV star still bodes well for wallets: The average price of a meal at Time Out Market will hover around $20. “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,” says CEO Didier Souillat.
Today’s announcement brings the grand total of concepts revealed to a gut-busting 11 out of 17. Fortunately, the next six includes dessert, which we know there’s always room for.
