Yumbrella Opens in South Miami. Weeks after the Citadel opened in Little River and the Lincoln Eatery debuted in Miami Beach, yet another food hall is ready for business. Yumbrella, led by food truck organizer and restaurateur Steve Simon, is now open in South Miami. The name pays tribute to a South Miami food hall that thrived more than four decades ago. The premise at the modern-day Yumbrella is the same, uniting a handful of popular Miami eateries, including King of Racks BBQ, Dr. Limon, and a concept by chef Adrianne Calvo of Chef Adrianne's Vineyard Restaurant & Bar. Located at Shops at Sunset Place, the 6,500-square-foot space includes seven stalls, a stage for music and performances, and a private room for events. 5701 Sunset Dr., South Miami; 305-397-8499. Sunday through Thursdays 11 a.m. to midnight; Fridays and Saturdays 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
