Delray Beach Market to open in the spring

Delray Beach’s newest attraction isn’t your run-of-the-mill food hall. It’s a community destination for art and events.

The Delray Beach Market is scheduled to open this spring in downtown Delray, becoming the largest food hall in Florida.

The $60 million project from Delray Beach-based Menin Development and Clique Hospitality at 33 SE Third Ave. draws from the town’s rich history as a travel and agricultural center as well as a winter escape. The Market will feature more than 25 local and regional eateries with a rotating lineup of smaller artisan vendor pop-ups throughout. Specialty food purveyors, innovative chef-helmed dining concepts and creative food incubators will be centered on local and ethnic gastronomy from established brick-and-mortar concepts to trendy food trucks. Rounding out the offerings are a creative beverage program, curated art and food exhibitions and a wide array of programming such as live music shows, culinary schooling and innovative events.

“It’s been years in development and it’s finally here, ready to be revealed and to play host the nearly three million annual visitors to Delray Beach (according to Downtown Development Authority]. We’ve worked hard to analyze and forecast what Delray Beach locals were missing and what our friends from around Florida and the country would love to patronize in a new model food hall, and placed it all within this single destination for food lovers to enjoy,” says Jordana L. Jarjura, president and general counsel for Menin Development.

At four stories and 150,000-square feet, the building has plenty of space for planned food museum exhibits, collaborations with food artists, educational celebrity culinary demonstration and more—all happening against a background of large-format interactive murals and sculptures by world-renowned artists.

“Delray Beach Market will be as much about supporting up and coming chefs as it will be to housing experienced concepts ranging from eclectic to fast-casual and fine dining. The market presents the perfect ecosystem for operators hard-pressed to congregate together in a communal dining experience, with easy financial access and built-in customers,” says Andy Masi, Clique Hospitality founder and CEO, whose team has been appointed to manage the facility.

Delray Beach Market has been in construction since November 2019 and will feature a 220-car, four-level enclosed parking garage and dedicated takeout/pick-up spots, touchless bathrooms, collapsible nanowalls for open-air spaces at the mezzanine special event level, outdoor seating for 200 and an enhanced air filter AC system. A central bar in the main hall will present the ultimate in build-your-own Bloody Marys along with a rotating menu of seasonal cocktails crafted by top mixologists.

The ground floor will offer a craft beer bar with selections from Florida breweries while the mezzanine level will feature open show kitchen surrounded with lounge areas along with an additional bar and event space. Plus these restaurants and retailer:

  • Sorella’s, an artisanal handmade pasta house featuring Chef Jimmy Everett, a Florida native with extensive Italian cuisine experience in kitchens like Marea (New York City) and Al Molo (Hong Kong)
  • Bona Bona, an over-the-top ice cream shop with a boozy streak known for wild concoctions like its toasted marshmallow meringue
  • Tekka Bar, an esteemed hand-roll and sake haven for sushi connoisseurs developed by acclaimed Las Vegas restaurateurs Takashi Segawa & Oliver Wharton
  • Tiffin Box, a fast, fresh Indian concept that aims to please the less traditional palate with delicately altered flavors and an amalgamation of recipes from different parts of India.
  • Nomad, a family-owned and operated veteran surf shop established in 1968, offering quintessential surf, swim and beach apparel collections, skate apparel and more.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
