Miami is no stranger to plant-based cuisine. Casual eateries that cater to vegetarians and vegans are a dime a dozen, especially here in South Florida where everyone’s busy working on their beach body. What’s rare, though, is a plant-based place that’s not just grab-and-go or counter service. Enter Plant Miami, a refined operation that successfully fills this particular niche.
Tucked away inside Downtown Miami’s Kimpton EPIC Hotel, there’s a lounge that’s home to one of the most passionate bartenders you’ll ever meet. At Lilt Lounge, Spencer Taliaferro takes his craft seriously, and after hearing him talk about it, don’t be surprised if you feel just as passionate.
During a recent tasting at Lilt, that’s exactly what happened. Wowed by his knowledge and drinks, we left Lilt with a greater appreciation of cocktails and rediscovered a bar that we hadn’t really visited since its grand opening. Shame on us for taking so long to come back.
