Kilgore Culinary to Introduce New American Bistro
James Beard-nominated Chef Brad Kilgore is adding another restaurant to his ever-growing Kilgore Culinary Group on Friday, May 24th, with the opening of Ember in Miami’s Design District. Located inside Paradise Plaza, Ember is an American bistro showcasing a classic and modern take on dishes, meats, pastas and sides.
“At Ember, I am really going back to my roots” says Kilgore. “I am excited to share my take on traditional American fare and elevate the dishes I grew up on. Not only are we focusing on the grilling but also paying special attention to our sauces, including my secret BKQ sauce, a take on my favorite sauce, Bearnaise and other interesting options ”
Whether sitting in the 90 seat dining room or at the more personalized 6 seat chef’s counter, the menu at Ember will be broken down by cold starters and warm appetizers. Focusing on dishes not traditionally found on the grill, Brad Kilgore, alongside Chef de Cuisine Nick Graves, has created a spin for this menu.
Designed by Mark Diaz from MAD Design, the 3,200-square-foot indoor/outdoor space has been inspired by the streamline moderne-style of art deco architecture and furniture. “One of the objectives at Ember was to redefine the aesthetic of masculinity by bringing a balance to the traditional norms associated with a masculine space. Ember expresses itself as a bold yet soft aesthetic, providing a warm, light environment with a refined but approachable design; its elegance is understated,” says Diaz.
Ember is located at 151 NE 41st St Unit 117, Miami, Florida 33137 and open for dinner serving beginning at 6:30 p.m., while the bar will open at 6 p.m., with brunch and lunch launching in the near future.
