Riders on the recently relaunched Brightline train -- and any visitor to Miami -- will have a handful of new restaurants and a new bar to sample at the high-speed line's Miami station. Citizens MiamiCentral, formerly known as Central Fare, is a 26,000-square-foot, 16-stall food hall operated in partnership with entrepreneur Sam Nazarian's C3 culinary project.
Located on the second floor of the train station, the food hall's choices include Umami Burger; Sa'Moto, an Asian concept; and Cindy Lou's Cookies. A new bar, Mary Mary, will serve artisanal cocktails and Miami-produced craft brews as well as an all-day breakfast, lunch and dinner menu.
In addition to serving passengers and other visitors to the station, the restaurants will deliver to anyone within a five-mile radius of the station.
"It's a very dynamic platform and we think food halls or culinary centers bring everyone together," said Nazarian, one of the founders of Morgans Hotel Group. His C3 initiative (short for Creating Culinary Communities) was founded in 2020 and focuses on food halls, ghost kitchens and mobile deliveries.
