Michelle Bernsteins Guide To Miami

Read the transcript of this video
[BLANK_AUDIO] I am Chef Michelle Bernstein. I was born here in Miami, Florida. I've seen the changes, which have been huge. The feel of Miami is so different, yet still the same in a way. I've lived it, I've seen it, I've done it. But this is my city. I'm always gonna be here. It's embedded in my blood, it's embedded in my soul. Miami inspires flavor. We are this mix of Latin cultures. All those flavors, all those cultures, are really combined into this great melting pot which you can taste in our food, you can hear in our music, and you can feel it. [MUSIC] I do have this embedded love for dance. And Ball and Chain is this lounge bar, salsa, jazz club where people are constantly dancing. God, it has like this Energy. It's just a great time. They have live music. It has a vibrancy I can't even tell you about. You have to just come and see. They've brought in this beautiful old culture with the old Latin music and the Caribbean feel to it, but in a very modern approach. It's contemporary in many ways, yet it feels like it's been there forever. [MUSIC] A block and a half away from Ball and Chain You have this crazy tapas restaurant but it's not just tapas, its Thai Tapas Lung Yai is this combination of classic, traditional, Thai food mixed with the modern today's style of tapas eating in a very modern take on Thai as well. So you have this quintessential Old history, new Miami, combination, it's perfect. It's such a typical Miami experience. You drive twenty minutes up north, you have the contemporary museum of art, and it just got such a great feeling of what Miami really is. You feel like you're in the Miami of today. We had no arts and culture in downtown Miami. And all of a sudden, we have the Perez museum, we have places to listen to great orchestra, ballet and not only is it bringing some of the best contemporary artists, it's bringing great food. Miami inspires flavor. If it doesn't have savor, which is flavor and power. If I didn't smack you with passion in every single bite, I definitely wouldn't be true to Miami. We're a place where people come [MUSIC] To try new foods, to learn about new cultures, dance to great music, and to live. Not just sleep, and wake up, and work, but live. Really live.
