Michelle Bernstein: New concept to replace Michy's.
Michy's, Michelle Bernstein's flagship Miami restaurant, is closing.

The restaurant, which opened in 2006, is closing Saturday, June 28, after eight years on Miami's Upper Eastside.

According to a release, the restaurant will then be renovated and "turned into a new restaurant by Chef Bernstein and [husband David] Martinez that will have a whole new look, feel, and food."

Bernstein said, "It's time for us to change the look and feel of the restaurant and provide our guests with a fresh, new concept. We embrace new projects and feel the Michy's space and our restaurant team deserve something new and exciting."

In an email, Bernstein said the expected opening for the new project is end of summer. "David, [business partner] Steve Perricone, and I decided we have had such a great run but, as with everything, you have to change and reinvent to keep going, and we want to have a long future together."

For patrons wanting a last taste of the celebrity chef's famous chow at Michy's, Bernstein will offer her Fried Chicken Wednesdays, featuring all the fried chicken and fixings you can eat with a chilled appetizer and slice of pie à la mode, beginning today, Wednesday, May 14. The all-you-can-eat fried chicken bonanza is priced at $39 per person.

Her other restaurant, Crumb on Parchment, which is located in the Design District, will remain open.

Michelle Bernstein is an exceptional Chef, and deserves all the success she has garnished throughout these years. She has groomed many local all stars, and continues to cook her ass off using high quality products for people to enjoy. I am truly going to miss this south Florida dining staple, but am confident the newly renovated space will be a hit.

Congratulations Senora Martinez...  You just broke another restaurant showing people that you can't rip them off anymore with that smile, ridiculous prices and Mc.Donalds' sized portions. You just got what you have built: A lie unmasked. Crumb on Parchment you're next.

If it's another rip off, it will last less than this one. She and her arrogant husband got what they deserve: Closing another restautant.
