Memorial Day in Miami hasn’t always been as much about barbecues and fireworks as it has about bridge-gnarling traffic and face-eating zombies. But this year, we have some legitimatecause for MDW excitement. Miami’s got its first genuinely awesome waterslides opening in Aventura, Brad Kilgore’s got a new restaurant coming to the Design District, and Salty Donut is opening a new spot in South Miami. All that plus the Blue Angels and a crawfish boil highlight the best stuff going on in Miami this weekend.
Friday, May 24 – Monday, May 27
Maybe you heard about this Alter place, but weren’t so much up for a multi-course culinary journey. You can try Brad Kilgore’s food in a more-traditional format at his new venture Ember, which opens Friday. Look for wood-fired classics like the Ember burger with truffle peppercorn glaze, fire-roasted lasagna, roasted cornbread, and, yes, plenty of steaks.
