The Citadel, a food hall planned for the Little Haiti/Little River neighborhood of Miami, announced a slate of new tenants, including the River Seafood Oyster Bar. 

Joining the River oyster bar is Green G Juice Bar and Taquiza, according to a press release.

Developers Thomas Conway and Nicholas Hamann plan to open the Citadel, a roughly 60,000-square-foot space at 8300 Northeast Second Avenue, in the winter. Other food and beverage concepts planned for the food hall include Stanzione 87, Bianco Gelato and Smashing Avo’s.

The Citadel will have up to 22 food and beverage tenants ranging from 100 square feet to 400 square feet, Hamann previously said. Green G will offer cold-pressed juices, smoothies and Acai bowls. Taquiza will sell tacos, street food and beer. It will be the second location for the River oyster bar, which is located at 650 South Miami Avenue near the Miami River and Brickell City Centre.

Property records show Hamann’s Uptown Miami 8300 LLC paid $2.7 million for the 1951-building in 2014. The food hall will take up about a third of the Citadel building, across the street from MADE at the Citadel. MADE is a co-working space Conway and Hamann opened about two years ago.

Last year, Entercom, one of the largest radio broadcasting companies in the U.S., inked a 22,500-square-foot lease for the rest of the Citadel. The area, which is west of Biscayne Boulevard, is attracting significant investment. Recently proposed developments in Little Haiti include Eastridge special area plan that would take over 22 acres, a proposal to redevelop Archbishop Curley-Notre Dame High School, and the $1 billion Magic City project.

The food hall craze is just hitting South Florida. La Centrale at Brickell City Centre, a three-story, 38,000-square-foot Italian food hall, is expected to open this fall, and in Miami Beach, plans for both the Time Out Market and the Lincoln Eatery were recently announced. – Katherine Kallergis
