From the co-founder of Barú and Tu Candela, CRATE, the plant-based Kitchen, Bar and Lounge is the latest destination in hospitality to arrive in Brickell by restaurateur and designer, Anselmo Di Virgilio Hernandez. Chef Christopher Baugh introduces an eclectic menu of vegetarian and vegan plates inspired by the knowledge harnessed from culinary ideologies in wellness and nutrition from around the world and during his time spent creating organically-grown signature dishes of his own in Indonesia.
As the very first plant-based culinary philosophy brought to Miami’s downtown district, CRATE will open for lunch and dinner, offering a casual dining experience that is simple and affordable, yet comfortably refined. Guests will experience a unique after-hours lounge environment featuring a fully licensed bar set within a retro-contemporary living room designed and developed by the founder.
An ornamental lighting fixture, illuminated by miniature bottles of olive oil, forms a centerpiece above the bar, juxtaposed against an oversized LED screen to compliment the progressive music and entertainment program that will set a new standard for Miami’s nightlifestyle.
