As part of a soft opening, Riverside in Miami will be welcoming guests every weekend throughout the month of February on Fridays starting at 4PM and the weekends at 12PM. The venue is opening in phases, gradually offering more and more entertainment and dining options, while giving the community a new space to socialize with a waterfront view. Once all areas are operating, Riverside will boast seven brand new dining concepts, a tap room, multiple bars, outdoor activities and plenty of green space to one single 120,000-square-foot indoor outdoor venue on the Miami River.
The landscaped waterfront setting will feature seven new dining concepts, two chef-driven full-service restaurants: AWA Asian Cuisine, an Izakaya style (Japanese Gastropub) restaurant led by Chef Gonzalo Arganaras and Patio Rivera, upscale Mediterranean fare by Chef John Iatrellis. Those opting to have a more casual experience can choose from a variety of eateries such as Cage, a more casual concept from the team behind Le Chick; Lisboeta, a Portuguese seafood joint by the Miami restaurant Old Lisbon; Mexican cuisine from Taco Gourmet by Chef Alex and Crush Pizza Bar. Riverside also caters to those with a sweet tooth, offering coffee and gelato by San Lorenzo Gelateria.
The tap room, courtesy of Miami River Brewery, is fully operational, featuring large screen TVs, extra-high ceilings and large fermentation tanks. As part of the pre-opening celebration, Riverside hosted a Big Game viewing party with hundreds of people. It featured Miami River Brewery beer, a huge screen on the side of a boat and live music, demonstrating that it is the perfect spot for a viewing party.
