At Alter, chef/owner Bradley Kilgore serves some of Miami's most exciting food. Come for the five- or seven-course creative tasting menus, featuring seasonal dishes and signature creations such as soft egg with sea scallop espuma and truffle pearls with Siberian caviar. Here, the 2016 Food & Wine Magazine best new chef has given Wynwood a welcoming restaurant that doesn't trade refinement for the neighborhood's cool factor. Alter defies all expectations in light of its surroundings: The restaurant has a spare industrial feel, and everything from reggae to rock blares over the sound system, but that says little about the quality of the dishes, such as smoked duck served with spring berry, kaffir lime yogurt, purple kale, and Marcona almonds. Insider tip: Take your visit to up a notch by booking the chef counter experience, a seven- or nine-course meal that places you in the middle of Alter's action. Brace yourself for a long and indulgent night.
