Citizens MiamiCentral Market600 NW First Ave., Miami
Alongside the relaunch of the Brightline train service, riders at all three Brightline stations — including Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach — can sample food and beverage from several new vendors. The Brightline's signature bar, Mary Mary, now offers an elevated sit-down service with an all-day menu of breakfast, lunch, and dinner items.

Inside the Miami station, locals and travelers can also find Citizens MiamiCentral Market, a 16-stall food hall that features culinary brands like EllaMia, Umami Burger, Sam's Crispy Chicken, Krispy Rice, El Pollo Verde, Cicci di Carne, Sa'Moto, and Cindy Lou's Cookies.
Holy Crab1601 Drexel Ave., Miami Beach (in Time Out Market)
With the opening of Holy Crab at Time Out Market, crustacean lovers can get their hands on some of the freshest stone crab in South Florida. And oysters! Cofounded by Lucas Calderon and fiancée Irene Guerrero and open only during stone crab season (October to May), Holy Crab gets its claws from the Florida Keys daily, in sizes that range from medium to colossal. They're sold by the pound for dine-in, takeout, or delivery — and don't ignore Holy Crab's house-made mustard sauce, which accompanies each order. Also on the menu: various side dishes.

Night Owl Cookies17 N. Hiatus Rd., Pembroke Pines
Night Owl Cookies has officially expanded to the 954 with the opening of its first Broward County location. The cookie-centric eatery opened its first brick-and-mortar in 2016 in the Magic City after baking out of a space at founder Andrew Gonzalez's parents' kitchen and delivering late-night cookies to locals. Delivery is still a big part of this business, but now you can head to the store for a selection that includes the popular birthday cake and chocolate chip flavors, as well as the "Ave Maria," with white chocolate chips, Maria cookies, and guava. Open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m.
