RE: MIAMI BEACH — AUGUST 24, 2019 — BY SUSAN ASKEW Miami Beach’s first food hall, open since the beginning of February, now wants to grow through the roof. Literally.
Lincoln Eatery has applied to the Planning Board to modify its previously approved Conditional Use Permit to allow a rooftop bar and outdoor entertainment area accessible from the first floor food hall. Currently the establishment at 723 Lincoln Lane North below Marshalls has the capacity for 16 different food vendors, 15 that serve food only and one that is licensed to serve alcohol. The vendors are lined up along the perimeter around a common seating area.
“This project, as conceived, is expected to be completed in two phases,” according to a Letter of Intent submitted to the Planning Board from Mindy McIlroy, the authorized representative for PPF 723 Lincoln Lane, the LLC that owns the building which contains the Lincoln Eatery and Marshalls. “The first phase which we are currently in the process of permitting with the building departments, will be an outdoor patio space of approximately 3,080 square feet, and we will build bathrooms to accommodate this use.”
