Boca magazine recently shared exciting news about a food hall opening in Delray Beach next Fall and now we’re thrilled to tell you about a similar eatery we discovered that’s open and thriving in Miami’s Medical District.
Jackson Hall, created by partners Della Heiman and Ken Lyon, is the first wellness-focused food hall in a public health space. The doors opened in April, welcoming hospital staff, patients and visitors to its communal 10,000 square foot space. Inside are six concepts with one purpose: to create a community of nourishment and connectedness in institutional health care.
The concepts include:
- della bowls offering plant-based “healthy bowls of happy”
- CHARCOAL Rotisserie
- Levante, a Middle Eastern concept
- Little Island, a Hawaiian poke bowl concept
- Leo & Bloom Delicatessen, a modern variation on a delicatessen
Radiate Apothecary + Bar, the centerpiece of the space, offers freshly made juices, smoothies, kombucha, elixirs, tonics, coffee, beer, wine and spirits. The space also includes a Petit Marché market with grab-and-go items, either made in-house or from local artisans.
Adding to Jackson Hall’s mission of offering healthy, affordable and delicious food—as well as providing a warm and welcoming space for people working in or visiting the medical district—is a new series of weekly events that further promote serenity, healing and well-being. Below is a sampling of upcoming programs, which are also available on Jackson Hall’s online calendar of events.
