Marketplace

In Miami’s trendy Mary Brickell Village, Perricone’s Marketplace & Cafe is the kind of place you can just relax in. The indoor/outdoor patio keeps you out of the blazing Florida sun but still provides a romantic ambience. To start, tear into baked Brie cheese wrapped in puff pastry dough brushed with drawn butter and powdered brown sugar. The top is then sprinkled with shaved almonds and sticky apricot jam. The melty cheese combined with the sweet sugar and jam is a perfect introduction to an unforgettable meal. Continue to the bruschetta bread basket, the lobster ravioli in a pink vodka sauce, and the lamb chops seasoned with rosemary and served perfectly pink atop a bed of couscous and steamed asparagus. Other highlights include the salmon in a lemon-butter sauce. For dessert, sample the house cake, a combination of chocolate and hazelnuts. As rich as a brownie, it’s the kind of dessert that you want to savor and pairs nicely with vanilla bean gelato. There’s an awesome Italian market in the lobby to stock up on pesto, seafood dip, and plenty of to-go truffles. Be sure to try the peanut butter teardrop.

It’s been nearly a year-and-a-half since Perricone’s Marketplace closed its doors after 22 years in business. The beloved Brickell restaurant was an unfortunate casualty of the neighborhood’s condo boom, but now—after 16 months without access to our fave “world’s famous chicken salad”—Perricone’s returns to a new, bigger space up the road in West Brickell. Perricone’s Marketplace & Café is located at 1700 SW Third Avenue, at Coral Way, and opens Thursday and Friday for lunch and dinner and Saturday and Sunday for dinner. The popular Sunday brunch is still on hold for the time being but there are other things to look forward to, like 60 (!) new parking spaces there for the taking. Cheers to new beginnings.
