BRICKELL CITY CENTRE WELCOMES A NEW FOOD HALL—A PLAYGROUND OF CONTEMPORARY, SPECTACULAR ITALIAN FOOD APTLY NAMED LUNA PARK.
Formerly La Centrale, the transformed space serves as a culinary paradise for authentic, regional Italian food featuring three all-new concepts and an entirely revamped hall that offers something for any occasion. Bringing excitement back into the upscale dining experience, the project pays close attention to food and its ingredients as well as ensuring the experience is magical and one to share with friends and family.
Led by Luna Park’s new executive chairman and acclaimed London-based restaurateur Roberto Costa, the culinary destination’s mission is to feature the highest quality ingredients available. Born and raised in the suburbs of Genoa, Italy, he spent his early days helping his family run their Trattoria. He later founded the Italian restaurant chain Maxela with Alessandro Garrone, and after 20 years of success throughout Italy, Roberto expanded Maxela to London in 2012. In 2014, Roberto Costa took full ownership of the restaurant and changed its name to Macellaio RC.
Luna Park brings three all-new concepts as well as a fully refreshed space throughout the destination’s three floors of authentic Italian fare. The new concepts, all located on the second floor of Luna Park, include:
Macellaio RC – A 60-seat elevated, authentic Italian butcher shop where guests can find the rare Fassona breed of beef. Known as the world’s healthiest beef due to its low cholesterol, Roberto Costa traveled to a quaint farm in Nebraska where he found this specific breed to serve exclusively at Macellaio RC at Luna Park.
Puro’s – An entirely gluten-free and vegetarian concept in collaboration with chefs Edoardo Ferrera, Laura Rindelli, and Francesco Alvino. In a crisp, entirely white setting inspired by the pureness of its ingredients, the 35-seat restaurant offers classic authentic Italian dishes with a vegetarian and gluten-free twist.
N.0 Osteria – A 70-seat concept inspired by Costa’s 30 years of experience focusing on authentic quality produce and the southern regions of Italy such Sicily, Reggio Calabria, and Puglia.
