Marygold, the much-anticipated new restaurant collaboration from chef Brad Kilgore and the Bar Lab team, debuts this Friday, November 18, at the Arlo Wynwood hotel. The restaurant will showcase a sophisticated Modern American menu with Florida flavors in a bright, greenery-filled setting.
This marks Kilgore’s return to the Wynwood neighborhood, which was home to his now-shuttered restaurant Alter, which won him several accolades during its run, including a James Beard Best Chef: South nomination and the title of Eater Miami’s restaurant of the year and chef of the year. The menu at Marygold’s is divided into four categories: to share, appetizers, entrees, and entrees for two. Guests can begin their meal with dishes like royal red shrimp carpaccio, beignets with jerk oxtail, caviar service with sweet potato waffle fries and parmesan creme fraiche, and baked oysters with nduja and rye crumbs. Larger dishes include items like grouper al pastor, cabbage terrine with mushroom and eggplant, and whole roasted fish meant to be shared. To complete the meal, desserts such as the Baked Florida, a twist on the classic featuring tropical fruit semifreddo, creamsicle yogurt, and pineapple rum that’s flambeed tableside, and the carrot cake bread pudding with espresso-date caramel and cream cheese gelato are highlights.
