Miami foodies are quick to brag about local star Alter, Bradley Kilgore’s fine dining establishment in the heart of Wynwood. One of Food & Wine’s best new chefs last year, Kilgore’s quickly become known for a menu that focuses on locally sourced ingredients and leans heavily on non-food descriptors—at the time of this writing, there’s a dish on the menu called “fallen tree” that contains palm trunk, trumpet stump, twigs, moss, mud, and funghi. Each of the prix fixe menus (you can choose between five and seven courses) finishes with a dessert from Kilgore’s wife, pastry chef Sonya Kilgore, who has a reputation for complex, textured, and ambitious dishes.
