Time Out Market Miami officially opened on Thursday, May 9 on Drexel Avenue one block south of Lincoln Road, putting Miami Beach on the map as the popular food hall’s first location in the United States. Time Out debuted its first market in Lisbon, Portugal five years ago and has become one of Portugal’s most visited attractions.
Miami Beach’s hub encompasses 18,000 square feet housing 18 eateries, a demo kitchen, and three bars. The concept is to bring the city’s best chefs, let them showcase their passion, put them under one roof, and keep the price point around $20.
The atmosphere is vibrant with communal wood tables for seating. Pink terrazzo accents are notable at the counters. Ambient music was DJ inspired the night we visited. Outdoor seating is available.
After perusing the different vendors, order at the counter, and a pager provided will notify you when your food is ready.
Time Out Market Miami’s three bars include the main bar in the center and two side bars. Twenty-five wine selections are available by the glass or bottle, as well as champagne, sparkling wine, and beer by local breweries on tap. Cocktails have been created by local bartenders with inspirations originating from the Broken Shaker, the Generator, and Sweet Liberty.

Many visits will be needed to experience the culinary sophistication Time Out Market Miami offers to our community. Our adventure began at Leña with wood grilled oysters. Sourced from the East Coast, they are served on a bed of salt. Their warmth and subtle flavor were enhanced by a chopped chive and lemon garnish.
Our next stop was K’West. Van Aken’s celebrated signature dish was our selection. Rhum and pepper painted fish was prepared with a soy and rum reduction, citrus dust, and black pepper. The grouper was caramelized, delicate and succulent, served atop a mango emulsion alongside a poblano pepper stuffed with mashed boniato.
Long awaiting a quality New York style pastrami sandwich in Miami Beach, Stephen’s Deli approaches the execution with an outstanding deli rye bread, piquant mustard and a generous portion of meat. Perhaps it is the best to arrive on the scene in a very long time. The flavorful sandwich could be improved with more highly seasoned meat, a leaner cut and thicker slices. Feedback was well received as Stephen’s Deli strives for perfection.
Our satiety was culminated with Van Aken’s key lime pie. Served in a jar with a carefully torched meringue topping, the tart key lime and graham cracker crust abundantly satisfied.
Other items we must have on a return visit include:
