New Name for Design District Food Hall: MIA Market
The Miami Design District's food hall has a new name and new partners. Mia Market, formerly Politan Row and originally St. Roch Market, now has at the helm Macromia Group, founded by a co-founder of St. Roch Market. They plan to own and operate Mia Market as a family-run business with husband-and-wife team Barre Tanguis and Cecile Hardy Tanguis overseeing operations and New York City chef J.D. Hilburn as culinary director.
The current lineup includes new and old offerings. Itamae, the popular Peruvian-Chinese stand operated by the Chang family, has moved downstairs in the former Ella space. Jaffa, known for classic Israeli dishes, has moved within the market to a larger stall. Here are new selections at the revamped food hall:
• Ruby Dee's, seasonal and vegetable-focused plates by chef Daniel Roy from The Generator Miami, featuring oysters, greens and mains.
• Foirette, New American rotisserie foods from New York City's Karen Ruedas and Tristen Reyes, with rotating daily and weekly specials.
• Osom Bites, from owner Roxana Morfe, who also owns and operates Hot Lime, offering sweet and savory crepes.
They join other stands, including:
• Dal Plin, serving handmade fresh pasta, ravioli, gnocchi and traditional comfort Italian specialties
• Hot Lime, a craft taco and ceviche concept
• Tran An, classic Vietnamese food offerings like pho, banh mi and salads from chef Jon Nguyen
• Sabal Coffee, craft coffee and tea beverages including espresso-based beverages, ready-brew, cold-brew, and single-origin pour-overs, and housemade vegan cookies
• COOP's American Southern food
• The Bar at MIA Market, featuring wine, beer, cocktails and a light bar bite menu curated by MIA Market chefs
MIA Market is located on the 2nd level of the Miami Design District’s Palm Court, is open Sun–Thurs from noon-pm and Fri-Sat noon-11pm.
