      ISSUE 11: MIAMI

      MICHY’S

      Teeny-tiny but big on talent, this stylish Upper East Side boite (think: azure floors and capiz shell chandeliers) is the pride of acclaimed husband and wife restaurant team David Martinez and Michelle Bernstein. Chef Bernstein excels at upscale comfort food and seasonal preparations, like squash blossoms with shrimp mousseline and salt-crusted snapper with artichoke and olives. And for dessert? Just try to say no to the baked Alaska.
