Matt Kuscher’s (better known as Kush) childhood dream has always been to develop restaurant concepts. He grew up spending every summer in his grandfathers breakfast spot, The Plantation Nook. It’s why he worked every position at his father’s Washington D.C. cafeterias from age 7 on up and after that attended Florida International University’s Chaplin School of Hospitality, graduating in 2000. That landed him in Miami where he’d fulfill his destiny as a third generation restaurateur. The Spillover will mark his third restaurant in Miami in five years, with hopes to open many more concepts in the 305.
Spider has been cooking up a storm at LoKal (and Coconut Grove) since day one. Originally from food haven New Orleans, raised in California, and with ample time spent in Georgetown, Spider brings us his 40 years of corporate kitchen experience, diverse flavors, and laidback vibe.
