Brava by Brad Kilgore Makes Its Grand Entrance at the Arsht Center Next Month

Opening September 30

Brava

This fall Brad Kilgore is taking his talents to the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts — literally — when he opens Brava by Brad Kilgore on September 30, according to the Miami Herald.

Housed inside the popular theater in Downtown Miami, on the second floor of the Ziff Opera House, the restaurant will offer up the "food with no boundaries" cuisine that Kilgore is known for with a little more of a European and French style presentation, Kilgore tells Eater.

Unlike concepts in the past at Arsht, this one will be a la carte as opposed to the previous prixe-fix menus that filled the restaurants there. Dinner reservations will also be open to the public (not just ticket holders) with the restaurant offering a seating to coincide with the show along with reservations after the show has begun.

Helping him in the kitchen is Toscana Divino’s Jeff Maxfield, who will oversee the Brava kitchen with Kilgore who's now splitting his time between his Wynwood hot spot Alter and Brava.

But if you can’t grab a seat at Brava, then you can still get a taste of Kilgore’s cuisine at the concession stands, where he is also handling all the food and beverage, along with the center’s special events catering.

Surprisingly enough, this isn’t the first time Kilgore has cooked in a performing arts center, he tells Eater that he used to work in an opera house in Dever and it’s "cool to evoke some memories."

Brava will be open on all performance days with seatings available for all evening performances and matinees, as well as post-curtain seatings starting at 8:15 p.m. A full menu will be unveiled in early September.
