Central Fare, the food hall inside the Virgin MiamiCentral train station, is now home to a new eatery: La Estación American Brasserie, a massive, 10,000-square-foot restaurant and bar that also boasts four private event spaces and a large open kitchen.

It's one of the latest additions to Central Fare, joining Parliament Coffee & Espresso Bar, Rosetta Bakery, World Famous House of Mac, Bucks Crepes, Patagonia Flavors by Delicatessen Patagonia, Bio Bio Gelato, and Art de Vivre.

Created by the Juvia Group — the company behind its namesake at 1111 Lincoln Rd. as well as Sushi Garage and Sunny Poké in Sunset Harbour — La Estación will have a more American focus, according to owner Jonas Millan.

"Our new restaurant at Central Fare is completely different than any concept we have done before," Millan says. "We want La Estación American Brasserie to be the go-to community restaurant for Brightline’s guests, neighboring residents, and the professionals who work right upstairs at MiamiCentral and [in] the surrounding area."

La Estación bills itself as a full-service bistro offering lunch and dinner where guests can dine in the full-service restaurant, grab a drink at the bar, or get coffee and dessert to go from the dessert bar.

An open kitchen allows guests to watch as chefs prepare a variety of American-style dishes that range from cobb salad and cheeseburger sliders to pickled shrimp avocado toast or a seafood pasta rife with lobster, calamari, and shrimp. The menu will feature dishes like barbecue ribs, burgers, soups, and salads along with a selection of Japanese items.

The 25-seat bar will serve cocktails, wines on tap, wines by the glass, local beer, and bar bites. Programming will include happy hour, live music, and DJs on hand. The four private dining rooms can seat 20 to 200.

In addition to the full menu, guests can also expect grab-and-go items like sushi. The weekday happy hour offers specialty cocktails for $6 to $7 Monday through Friday from 4 to 8 p.m.
