The food hall, called Central Fare, will be anchored by Juvia Group’s La Estación American Brasserie, a 240-seat, 10,000-square-foot restaurant and bar with private event space and an open kitchen.

Parliament Coffee & Espresso Bar is now open at the entrance of Central Fare. Rosetta Bakery will open “in the coming weeks” and 800º Woodfired Kitchen is set to open this fall, according to the release.

Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson unveiled the re-branded mixed-use train station last week. Virgin Trains USA, formerly known as Brightline, won state approval for a $950 million bond issue to finance an extension of its rail service to Orlando.
