For Brad Kilgore, a repeated nominee of James Beard’s Best Chef South and Food & Wine’s 2016 Best New Chef, Alter is his ultimate favorite spot. Set in a former warehouse, Alter’s hip neon interior and casual feel encapsulates the essence of Wynwood. But it’s Kilgore’s experimental New Age menu and ingredient-driven plates – such as camouflage lasagnette with a trio of lamb ragout, parsnip de leche and pumpkin seed miso – that draw in diners. Choose one of three tasting menus, and don’t skimp on the beverage pairings. When you’re done, hop outside to Bar Alter for a post-dinner cocktail – the Diablito with Altos Reposado tequila, cassis, citrus, ginger beer and Hellfire Bitters is a highlight.
