Resorts World Miami rendering shows lots of little people eating at lots of restaurants.
Resorts World Miami, the mega resort/casino/condo/convention center being planned by Genting may not be finished for a few years, but one thing's for sure -- it's going to add a hell of a lot of dining options to the Miami scene.

According to Sergio Bakas, senior vice president for Arquitectonica, the Miami-based firm that's been named as architect for the project, at the present time there are allotments for "44 restaurants and 20 food court stalls" in the plans (which are still at the conceptual phase).

Now before everyone gets crazy thinking how many Red Lobsters and Chili's can we put in one downtown space, according to Bakas, the "idea is not to bring in large chain restaurants, but to bring in local counterparts."

At this point, there are no lease negotiations with possible tenants or even blueprints of possible restaurant sites, but we're trying to wrap our heads around having more than 40 local restaurateurs under one roof.

The $3 billion project is slated to be located on the Miami Herald and Omni sites. For more info on this behemoth undertaking, see our Riptide blog.

Instead of freaking out about our city turning into Las Vegas -- or worse, Atlantic City -- close your eyes and take a deep breath. Now picture a world where Miami foodies can stroll in safe, climate-controlled comfort from restaurant to restaurant.

In our mind*, we'll start with some tapas from Michelle Bernstein's Sra. Blackjack, have a steak at Prime Resorts Miami, and finish with a Hedy Goldsmith dessert from Michael's Genuine Casino before taking in a musical revue starring Tom Jones and Pitbull at the Barton G. Concert Hall and playing some slots at the Tudor House Casino.

See! That wasn't so bad, was it?

*In our mind = totally fantasy land, by the way.

seriously the design is kind of ugly, the buildings look like giant teeth and do not flow with the rest of Miami's skyline.

This isexactly what Miami needs to stimulate our economy.  The Resorts World Miami property will have the largestconvention space in the entire country. I bet it will also be the coolest. Why would anyone go to Las Vegas when Miami has a convention center likeGenting is planning???  The answeris - they wouldn't.  This projectMUST get approved.  The futuresolvency of Miami might actually depend on it.

Let's be realistic here. It would be great.......but the Florida legislators control this project and Ma and Pa kettle in northern Florida could care less. You also have to watch out for the developer promising the world and and just converting the omni in to a casino and making the herald building the parking lot. the way they would do this is to call the omni" phase 1" Just a few random thoughts
