The food hall craze continues, with the latest multi-restaurant concept set to open this week in a brand new Doral development.
Shoma Group – a leading real estate group in South Florida with dozens of residential, retail and commercial projects under its belt – is behind Shoma Bazaar, the sprawling indoor/outdoor venue that spans 13,000 square feet ( about the size of two-and-a-half basketball courts, for reference).
Among its restaurants and Biergarten, the food hall features a 30-seat bar with an adjacent cocktail bar, which features a drinks program by award-winning Bar Lab mixologists (Broken Shaker, Margot Natural Wine Bar). This might be Shoma Bazaar’s biggest draw as Doral is sorely lacking in the cocktail bar department.
There are 15 different food concepts inside Shoma Bazaar, including outposts of popular Miami restaurants and second locations of other favorite restaurants. People will find Ash Pizza, a spin-off of Brickell’s Stanzione which is also in the Citadel; Trattoria Dal Plin Italian Eatery, which sprung up at MIA Market in the Design District; local Asian chains Pubbely Sushi and InRamen; Push MIA; BFF Burgers, Franks Fries; The Bakery/Café, with Juice & Java, Sweet Manifesto and Tintto By Tributto; Ella’s Oyster Bar (formerly on Calle Ocho) and a street food area with bites from Little Havana’s Doce Provisions and Shahs of Kabob.
Shoma Bazaar is located at 9420 NW 41st Street, and you absolutely can’t miss it: Flanking the entrance are two sculptures of a dog and a woman, inspired by co-owner Stephanie Shojaee and her dog and designed by a plastic surgeon-turned-artist Dr Simon Ourian.
