If you thought Major Food Group (MFG) was controlling Miami via its restaurants Carbone, HaSalon, and ZZ’s Club, you haven’t seen anything yet.
Last night, MFG announced its latest project – and it’s so much more than just another restaurant.
MFG is partnering with JDS Development Group to build Major, a luxury Brickell Tower that, at 1,049 feet, would be the tallest building in Miami if completed today. (The Waldorf Astoria Hotel and Residences, planned on NE Fifth Street and Biscayne Boulevard across from Bayside, will rise to the same height.)
Located at 888 Brickell Avenue, the Major will feature 259 residences and offer “the most impressive array of food and beverage facilities of any building in Miami, if not in the United States,” according to a press release.
Major Food Group, led by founders Mario Carboni, Jeff Zalaznick and Rich Torici, will be responsible for the residences’ private food and beverage, restaurant and club programs.
Although no more information has been shared regarding restaurants in the tower, MFG has announced plans to open several restaurants across South Florida, including Dirty French in Brickell, so it’s a good thing that a NYC steakhouse finds a home in the project. .
MFG also plans to open several locations at Sadelle’s brunch-focused restaurant, with the first located in Coconut Grove.
The completion date of the main project has not been set, and housing prices have not been announced.
MFG’s ambitions to dominate South Florida don’t stop at the Miami-Dade border, either: The group has opened a guest-only restaurant called Flamingo Grill at the newly renovated Boca Raton Resort (formerly Boca Raton Resort and Club). Parm, an Italian restaurant concept from MFG, will open its fifth location in Palm Beach Gardens sometime next year.
