Ember and Kaido will span 6,000-square-feet over two floors, but they will feature two different concepts. Kaido will be a Japanese-influenced cocktail lounge and restaurant, and Ember will be a wood-fire bistro with an exposed kitchen.
Kilgore adds he will be experimenting with foods not typically grilled at Ember, and he’s also working with his designer, Mark Diaz, on creating new tools for grilling. He says the food will be “classical but with a creative edge.”

Two restaurants have signed for space within Miami Design District's Paradise Plaza expansion, and are slated to open next year.
Chef Brad Kilgore, the culinary director of the Adrienne Arsht Center and the chef behind Alter and Brava in Miami, will lead the new eateries. Opening mid-2018, Ember and Kaido will total 6,000 square feet in two floors at the Design District.
"Over the years, the Miami Design District has become a global destination for commerce and culture," said Craig Robins, CEO of Miami Beach-based Dacra, the developer behind the Miami Design District. "It’s important that the neighborhood’s culinary offerings match the creativity and innovation of the public art, architecture, design, and retail in the neighborhood. I am confident that Ember and Kaido will bring the right energy and excellence to the Design District and will be important additions to the overall experience of the neighborhood."
