“Sharing our concept with the dynamic community of Brickell is a significant milestone for both my wife, Tessa, and me. With the community being so responsive to MOTEK, our team is honored to extend our presence across Miami with our largest location to date. We’re confident that MOTEK will elevate the area’s culinary offerings even further and look forward to opening our cherished concept in Brickell City Centre.”Said Charlie Levy, Founder of MOTEK.
The family-owned restaurant, celebrated for its warm hospitality and award-winning Arayes Burger, has gained a reputation for offering famed kosher-style dishes inspired by Founder Charlie Levy’s childhood in Israel. MOTEK has quickly become a favorite among locals and visitors alike, offering an unparalleled dining experience that celebrates the rich flavors and diverse cultures of Israel, the Middle East, and the Eastern Mediterranean. MOTEK was originally established in June 2020 in Downtown Miami and offers innovative dishes rooted in traditional Mediterranean cuisine with quality and freshness at its forefront.
MOTEK’s new 10,000 sq. ft. location will boast the brand’s signature sunshine yellow accents and flowery yet warm ambiance in a prime location on the fourth floor of Brickell City Centre. The space will be equipped with MOTEK’s first in-house bakery, signature wood-fired ovens, a 255-seat indoor and outdoor dining area, and a full 24-seat bar. MOTEK Brickell City Centre will also introduce an all-new beverage program for the brand, helmed by locally acclaimed mixologist and Beverage Director, Randy Perez. The program will debut at Brickell City Centre before rolling out company-wide, offering a new approach to concept-driven cocktails that imbibe Israel, the Middle East, and the Eastern Mediterranean to complement MOTEK’s beloved menu.
