Yumbrella Food Hall opened its doors in March of 2019 as a collection of seven concepts under one roof at Federal Realty’s The Shops at Sunset Place, offering something for everyone—from American classics, to Asian cuisine and Latin American dishes, paired with craft cocktails, and baked desserts and craft ice cream for a sweet ending.
Local food truck organizer and restaurateur Steve Simon partnered with Federal’s head of specialty leasing, Mike Kelleher, to activate an unexpectedly vacant restaurant space within The Shops at Sunset Place in South Miami. Long and Kelleher were able to negotiate a temporary lease which allowed Yumbrella to come to life combining a number of food vendors and a liquor permit while managing to offer table service, a unique value proposition among most food hall concepts.
Yumbrella has proven to be a great success for both Federal and the operator, which is able to switch out restaurant participants to keep the offerings fresh with local vendors and chefs. The space offers a full-service restaurant, a craft liquor bar and outdoor seating, and features a stage for musical performances and karaoke as well as a private event space.
Yumbrella joined other popular tenants at The Shops at Sunset Place including AMC Theatres, LA Fitness, Tea & Poets, Splitsville and Z-Gallerie. The center enjoys close proximity to major educational institutions and employers including University of Miami, South Miami Hospital, some of Miami’s most prestigious private schools, and a number of corporate offices – all who get to savor the culinary delights inside South Miami’s first food hall.
