Hospitality Design | Trends: Food Halls

As people continue to search for culinary experiences in a landscape of unlimited options, it’s no surprise that thoughtfully crafted, location-driven marketplaces around the globe are flourishing, tapping into patrons’ hunger for eclectic, aroma-filled atmospheres. Here’s a look at nearly a dozen food emporiums that excite the taste buds and captivate the eye.

Central Fare, Miami
New York firm AvroKO took cues from iconic Miami architect Morris Lapidus for Central Fare marketplace located in mixed-use development MiamiCentral, a hub for the new Brightline express train station. Principals Willian Harris, Greg Bradshaw, Adam Farmerie, and Kristina O’Neal, as well as architecture firm McKenzie, “wanted to celebrate Miami’s lushness and the nature that surrounds the [Brightline] station,” explains Bradshaw, layering the space with materials like stone, wood, terrazzo, cork, and Oolite, found in the Florida Keys. A gradient palette of green and marine blue complements these materials, as do the custom brass gate and botanical-inspired artwork that greet guests at the entrance. Along with culinary offerings from local and regional artisans, chefs Bryan and Michael Voltaggio’s first collaborative project Monger will anchor the 50,000-square-feet space with a midcentury aesthetic.
