13 diverse dining concepts currently occupy the 9,600-square-foot space at the intersection of Lincoln Lane and Meridian Avenue. Offerings highlight local Miami talent and global flavors, including modern Thai street food stand Cake Thai Kitchen, healthy fast food specialist Fresh Garden Bowls and Argentinian kitchen Patagonia Flavors. The Tavern Bar is supplying libations at the center of The Lincoln Eatery, and on the sweet side of things ChillN is serving up silky smooth flash-frozen ice cream, Toast & More has sweet tartines and French pastries and Manhattan Paletas offers all-natural fruity pops. The Lincoln Eatery offers these vendors access to a wider consumer base, and for many it’s their first brick-and-mortar location.

The project is helmed by Terranova Corporation, a commercial real estate firm, and was designed by global architecture firm Arquitectonica. “Our goal with The Eatery is to work with local and national culinary entrepreneurs, providing the support and infrastructure they need to be successful [and] in turn offering an exciting, affordable new dining experience that will be authentic and new to the area,” Stephen Bittel, Terranova founder and chairman, said in a release.
Developers hope to draw in convention goers and the post-shopping and theater crowd thanks to the food hall’s proximity to Lincoln Road, the Miami Beach Convention Center, New World Center (a concert hall), the Fillmore Miami Beach (a historical event hub) and Miami City Ballet.

As it currently stands, The Lincoln Eatery seats over 200 in its indoor and outdoor spaces. The light-filled interior with glossy subway tiles and polished concrete floors is softened by rustic wood tables and chairs. The second phase of the project, slated to open later this year, will bring a spacious rooftop terrace boasting views of South Beach – additional space for dining, drinking, special events or simply lounging.
