MEET THE CLUB’S
To develop the food and beverage program, The Concours Club enlisted the absolute best, Brad Kilgore. Brad, a James Beard nominee and Food and Wine Magazine’s 2016 "Best New Chef", is the genius behind some of Miami's hottest restaurants including Alter, Ember and Kaido.
Trackside dining at The Concours Club will provide an unparalleled experience. Brad's new restaurant concept will open with The Club next year as a private venue available only to members and their guests.
"I am blown away with this amazing project and I could not be more excited to be Culinary Director for The Concours Club. Designing culinary options that fully represent the excitement and action of The Concours Club, while seamlessly folding in the bold tastes of Miami is a unique experiment. After exploring a variety of flavors and menu options, I am looking forward to presenting what we have come up with for members.”
