THE FOOD HALL CRAZE IS IN FULL EFFECT IN SOUTH FLORIDA, AND IT HAS NOW GRACED THE FAMOUS LINCOLN ROAD WITH THE NEW LINCOLN EATERY. FEATURING MOSTLY BUSINESSES THAT ARE NEW TO THE MARKET, THIS FOOD HALL IS BRINGING FRESH, EXCITING IDEAS TO THE DINING SCENE.
The Lincoln Eatery made its debut in January, bringing along with it an array of concepts for all to enjoy: XO Espresso Bar, TYO Sushi, Toast & More, Smoke’d, Patagonia Flavors, Necessary Purveyor, Marble & Rye, Manhattan Paletas, Gaijin by Cake, Fresh Garden Bowls, Chill-N, and Cake Thai.
Designed by global architecture firm Arquitectonica, the food hall boasts the look and ambiance of a chic, modern hang-out spot. A wall lined with wooden tables and bar stools makes for casual, comfortable seating, and a flat-screen TV with a Super Nintendo invites gamers to play. A pink neon-lit sign reads, “Get in my belly,” which is not only an Instagrammable addition to the food hall, but a relatable sentiment. There are so many food options, you will want to eat them all!
If you’ve been seeking out a deli that will satisfy your pastrami sandwich craving, check out Marble & Rye, a modern take on the traditional New York delicatessen. The owners have been in the industry for over 25 years, and pride themselves on their kosher food and handcrafted recipes.
If sushi is more your thing, TYO Sushi, a kosher sushi restaurant, puts a unique Miami twist on its rolls: The Cuban Roll and the South Beach Roll are favorites.
Take a break from the Florida heat with Manhattan Paletas (Frozen popsicles), where you can get an ice cold vegan treat. The company is pretty well-known in Mexico, however, this is its first U.S. location. Try the Aguacate (Avocado) popsicle for a creamy, savory delight.
Lincoln Eatery just introduced its tropical bar concept, Cocktails, in June. Island-inspired wallpaper lines the walls, banana leaf pendant lights hang over the bar seats, and a neon-lit sign reads, “It’s 5:00 somewhere,” complete with a glowing goggle-wearing flamingo. The bar’s menu was curated by bar manager Liliam Ma and her team, and features signature cocktails like The Morning After, which is made with cornflakes-infused rum, pineapple, and coconut. Cocktails’ Happy Hour will run Monday-Friday, 3 p.m.-7 p.m., and from 7 p.m. to closing on weekends.
