Miami's Top Ten Chefs

Michelle Bernstein designs Havaianas and makes good eats.
4. Michelle Bernstein
Michelle Bernstein does much more than create food-and-wine-inspired Havaianas. The James Beard Award-winning chef, Iron Chef America winner, and cookbook author owns two Miami restaurants: the Upper Eastside staple Michy's and Crumb on Parchment, a Design District café with freshly baked goods. Although Bernstein has been a mainstay in Miami for years, in the past few years she has evolved from local chef to full-blown personality. She makes TV appearances, has a line of cookware, and opened the Miami chapter of Common Threads. She continues to be one of the Magic City's central culinary figures.

Dena Marino chats on her celly at MC Kitchen.
3. Dena Marino
At MC Kitchen, Dena Marino excels at Italian cuisine. There are pastas, there is fish, and there is also great salad. No other chef in town can roast an octopus like Marino can. In her rendition, the sea creature's tentacles are dressed with Tuscan extra-virgin olive oil, red pepper, and garlic. The octopus is charred, tossed with sherry vinegar and pancetta, and served alongside black rice and frisée. It is an excellent dish. Marino also owns Mercato, a café that supplies the Design District with MC-level cuisine at affordable prices. Though Marino is a relative newcomer, she flies high on our ranking for offering the district high and low Italian fare.

I think I have to try to see if what you publish the article corresponds with such controversial comments. Anyway the controversy always generates ad!

I started thinking some more about this and well, there are some other names that really should have made it.  Giorgio Rapicavoli, whoever the person that cooks at Pubbelly, the guy from Sugar Cane.....  I think I can go on.  The one thing the list did get 100 % right is Kevin Cory.  Hands down.

Danny Serfer, from Blue Collar should have made the list in lieu of 2-3 of the names on here.

@Manny None of these places are anywhere I would spend money for overpriced food that my mom makes better than any of them. At the end of the day here, pasta specialists & ramen experts ? That's boiling water and setting a timer kind of stuff ? The rest of it is sauce that covers everything else ? In that case there might be a few food trucks that serve a comparable meal that satisfies for taste & appetite.
