Della Heiman, founder of The Wynwood Yard in Miami, and business partner Ken Lyon will open Jackson Hall at 1050 NW 14th St. in Miami this spring. The duo tout Jackson Hall as “first wellness-focused culinary business of its kind in a public health space.’’ It will be located in the Civica Center in the Jackson Health District (the second largest health district in the U.S.) in an area widely regarded as a food desert.
Heiman said Jackson Hall will provide patients, healthcare employees and other visitors with healthy food in a communal 10,000-square foot space with a rustic tin ceiling, art by local muralists on the walls, a positivity library and edible plants. The space will juxtapose with the modern, convenient, tech-enabled dine-in, delivery and catering options that will be available, such as on-screen ordering.
Initial operating hours will be Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The eating experience in Jackson Health District will include five concepts, including second locations of dellabowls and CHARCOAL Garden Bar & Grill, Heiman and Lyon’s restaurant concepts at The Wynwood Yard.
dellabowls is a fast-casual concept focused on affordable, globally-inspired plant-based bowls. CHARCOAL Garden Bar + Grill was the first full-service concept at The Wynwood Yard. At Jackson Hall, this new CHARCOAL concept will be based on a charcoal-fired Josper rotisserie imported from Spain, with a menu including responsibly-sourced chicken and wholesome iterations of comfort food.
Other concepts will include “Levant,’’ a Middle Eastern eatery that will serve kabobs, shawarma and mezze; a Hawaiian poke bowl concept and “Leo & Bloom Delicatessen,’’ a modern variation of a delicatessen offering artisanal soup, salad and sandwiches. The space will also include a Petit Marché market with grab-and-go items.
The Radiate Apothecary + Bar at Jackson Hall, a centerpiece of the space, will provide guests freshly made juices, smoothies, kombucha, elixirs, tonics, beer, wine and spirits. Susan Duprey, a certified nutritionist, former bartender and founder of the popular Radiate Miami, will direct the beverage program. Duprey launched a line of kombucha, locally made ferments and beauty products at The Wynwood Yard with her Radiate Miami kiosk. A full espresso bar will offer caffeinated beverages.
