Newmark Retail announces a new long-term 6,544 square-foot lease for Argentinian bistro Novecento at Mary Brickell Village on 901 S Miami Ave.  The popular eatery will relocate from its 1414 Brickell Avenue location to a prominent second-level space at the urban, open-air dining and shopping destination. Newmark’s Managing Director John Ellis was the sole broker on the transaction.

“We are very excited to be relocating our Flagship restaurant to the vibrant Mary Brickell Village,” said Aliosha Stern, CEO of Suviche Hospitality Group. “We have some special design elements and new experiences that will be unique to this location. We can’t wait to showcase these to the Brickell and Miami community.” 

Novecento first opened its doors in 1991 in New York’s SoHo neighborhood, where it quickly became a local hotspot. Following that success, the concept went international with outposts across South America. Novecento came to Miami in 2002 and established its brand in the burgeoning Miami Beach neighborhood, then moved to Brickell and expanded to Key Biscayne, Doral and Aventura. The restaurant is known for its famous dish, the Novecento Salad. It is also a famous destination for tennis stars, frequented by the likes of Rafa Nadal, Juan Martin Del Potro, Novak Djokovic, and Marin Cilic. The restaurant will now be relocating from its Brickell Avenue location to the heart of the neighborhood in Mary Brickell Village. Novecento is projected to be open by Q3 of 2022.  

“Miami has never been more popular as several new food and beverage purveyors are using this opportunity to secure great space as we shift back to reopening,” said Ellis. “Florida was one of the few states to see a dramatic influx of visitors and new residents, and the demand for innovative concepts has never been higher.”  

Mary Brickell Village is Miami’s urban playground, attracting an affluent consumer demographic and reaching 147,000 downtown workers. The premier, master-planned, mixed-use development is strategically located in the heart of Brickell’s 24-hour live-work-play neighborhood with over 200,000 square feet of open-air retail space. It is surrounded by excellent high street retail offerings, dense office space, and residential communities. Mary Brickell Village offers an array of food options where visitors can enjoy multiple flagship dining experiences and open-air dining. The property recently completed a multi-million-dollar renovation which included rebranding, physical upgrades and new landscaping. Notable tenants include Moxie’s, Balans, North Italia, Toscana Divino, Starbucks, Raw Jūce, Shake Shack, PF Changs,  and Blue Martini. Mary Brickell Village hosts several local boutiques, five health and beauty concepts, a Publix grocery store and a 38,000 square-foot LA Fitness Club.  

Brickell is the third most dense downtown in America with over 2,600 people per acre and a daytime population of over 220,000 people. The area features astounding foot traffic from the newly built condos, hotels, and trendy new bars restaurants that draw a diverse crowd of young professionals, international visitors, and locals. Brickell also offers proximity to Port Miami and many established corporate headquarters.
