James Beard Award-winning chef Michelle Bernstein this week opens the doors to her new Miami flagship restaurant: Cena by Michy.
It officially opens for dinner service Friday, although the kitchen crew has been banging out dishes for a full dining room for the past few days.
Located in the former Michy’s at 6927 Biscayne Blvd., Cena is the result of an 11-month remodel and rethinking of Bernstein’s heralded restaurant, from menu to decor to wine list.
Bernstein says she’s focusing her food on “adventurous yet approachable” dishes meant to be shared, with renewed attention to vegetables. Cena sports a full bar for classic and modern cocktails, plus a wine program that leans toward Old World bottlings.
Cena by Michy is open daily for dinner.
