This little foodie hotspot in Wynwood is offering up a $250 7-course prix-fixe seating that includes a bottle of Billecrat Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne per couple. The meal begins at the perfect hour of 9:30pm so you’ll be poised to toast midnight at the end of your meal. If that’s a little late, there will be a shorter 5-course meal at 7pm for $125 offering up a flute of bubbly per person instead of a bottle.
While they haven’t revealed the menu yet, we’re pretty sure it will be delicious as Alter has been named the Miami Herald’s 2015 Restaurant of the year.
