Woodhouse rejuvenates The Moore in Miami’s Design District with Elastika, a modern-American restaurant featuring iconic Zaha Hadid sculpture

WoodHouse has announced the grand reopening of The Moore in Miami's Design District, an event that marks a new era for the historic landmark. The Moore is repositioned as a vibrant hub of lifestyle and culture, complete with a private members club, boutique hotel, executive offices, and gallery space. Additionally, it now hosts Elastika, a modern American restaurant on the building’s first floor.

Elastika promises a unique culinary journey under the guidance of acclaimed Executive Chef Joe Anthony. The restaurant is designed to be a central gathering spot in the Miami Design District, melding dining with the local art and culture scene. Elastika pays tribute to its namesake—the striking Zaha Hadid sculpture that dominates the atrium above the dining area—mirroring the district's artistic spirit.


Brady Wood, CEO of WoodHouse, expressed that Elastika aims to serve as the Miami Design District’s welcoming lobby, where the community can enjoy not just food but also the surrounding art, including the iconic sculpture. The culinary philosophy at Elastika emphasizes vibrant, original, and conscientious dishes, prioritizing regenerative and sustainable ingredients sourced from local farms like Tiny Farm and French Farms.

Elastika's globally inspired menu features dishes like Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho, Citrus Cured Kingfish Crudo, and Miso Marinated Beef Tenderloin, showcasing a commitment to flavor and innovation. The restaurant’s design integrates modern elegance with the building's original architectural features, offering a sophisticated yet inviting ambiance. The space is curated with contemporary art by Miami-based advisor Monica Kalpakian and includes notable works such as Rob Pruitt’s US (2013).


In collaboration with the hospitality design firm ICRAVE, WoodHouse has reimagined the historic atrium into a culinary sanctuary that includes a bar, plush seating, and a semi-private dining area. A new skylight and a sidewalk patio enhance the dining experience with natural light and an option for al fresco meals.

The Moore's rich history, dating back to the 1920s Florida Land Boom, enriches Elastika’s story, having once been a furniture showroom and a cultural venue for numerous significant events and exhibitions. Elastika will operate dinner services throughout the week and introduce lunch in the coming weeks. For reservations and more details, interested parties can visit www.elastikamiami.com
