The Spillover Debuts Laidback Seafood Eats in Coconut Grove

The guys behind Miami favorites LoKal, Kush, and Miami Brew Bus are at it again with a brand new concept, The Spillover. Veering away from the burgers and beer menus they are known for (even though you can find plenty of that on the menu at The Spillover) the new concept focuses on all things seafood and features Miami’s first ever cider bar — and we got a first taste.

Like LoKal and Kush, the Spillover puts emphasis on sourcing ingredients locally and sustainably, but served in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. The menu features a wide array of starters, salads, sandwiches, mains and sweets, all made in house and from scratch, with some of the dishes “spilling over” from neighboring restaurant LoKal.

Favorites from the staters included seafood restaurant must, Florida Fish Dip, made with smoked Florida grouper and local white fish, served with plenty of crackers and sardines. Another favorite was the vegetarian-friendly Buffalo Heirloom Cauliflower baked in the restaurant’s homemade buffalo sauce topped with chives and blue cheese dressing.

A whole section dedicated to “bread” aka sandwiches features an array of options that are sure to appease anyone. The Lobster BLT served “Key West style” with Miami Smoker’s Bacon and homemade spicy mayo; the Lobster Reuben featuring an entire Maine lobster topped gruyere cheese and cole slaw; and the the Pan Con Minuta with tail still intact was topped with dry slaw, diced red onions and tomato, served on a challah bun were all winners.

 And since a meal isn’t properly complete without dessert, The Spillover’s decadent Guava Bread Pudding, tres leches style with pecans, chopped toffee, caramel sauce and whipped cream, certainly hit the spot.

Until you get a chance to check out the cuisine for yourself (including a picture of quite possibly the best bathroom in town) take a peek at the delicious pictures below.
