Miami’s food hall mania doesn’t want to seem to slow down. The latest newcomer is Jackson Hall, a health-focused food hall, which debuted this week on the second floor of the Civica Center at 1050 NW 14th Street in the Jackson Medical District.
The brainchild of Della Heiman, founder of The Wynwood Yard and business partner Ken Lyon, it features six eateries and a bar, all with a good-for-you slant. Restaurants inside include Levante, a Middle Eastern concept serving kabobs, shawarma and mezze; Little Island, a Hawaiian poke bowl concept and Leo & Bloom Delicatessen, a deli offering soup, salad and sandwiches; Petit Marché market with grab-and-go items; and the second outpost of della bowls and Charcoal, Heiman and Lyon’s restaurant concepts that they respectively launched at The Wynwood Yard.
Serving as the centerpiece of the space is Radiate Apothecary + Bar serving up juices, smoothies, kombucha, elixirs, tonics, beer, wine and cocktails as well as a full espresso and coffee bar.
The team tapped Miami chefs Julie Frans and Nicole Votano to head their food program, which promises to offer plenty of vegan and gluten-free options and also intends to stay away from deep frying, partially hydrogenated oils, hormones, artificial sweeteners, and high fructose corn syrup.
On the third floor of the space, the team is developing a plan to built it into a hydroponic farm in the next few months with the goal of providing at “least 1,000 pounds” of greens, herbs and vegetables to the food hall each week.
Jackson Hall is now open Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
