Brad Kilgore's much-anticipated Wynwood restaurant Alter opens its doors tonight to the hungry public.
The project between Kilgore and his partners Javier Ramirez and Leo Monterrey serves Florida-inspired cuisine that showcases Kilgore's extensive fine-dining experience, but in a much more approachable environment — and price point. No dish on the menu is more than $30 with a five-course tasting menu available for just $65 per person. He tells Eater that soon he plans to have a four seat chef's table, which will serve a 10-course meal for $95.
While Kilgore may not be a Florida native, he sure does embrace what's available throughout the state saying the goal of the menu is to, "alter your perception of what you can make of the ingredients available down here." So expect dishes like a soft Florida egg topped with a sea scallop espuma, house-made truffle pearls and a gruyere crisp; Florida-grown beets with local cheese and honey comb miso; and grouper cheeks with black rice and sou hollandaise.
The 40-seat restaurant is open for dinner Tuesday through Sunday from 7 to 11 p.m. at 223 N.W. 23rd Street. To make a reservation visit here or Table8 here.
