Since award-winning chef Michelle Bernstein and husband/partner David Martinez opened Michy’s – their gourmet neighborhood eatery nestled in an unassuming strip mall on Biscayne Boulevard – the chef’s to-die-for fried chicken has been a staple on the restaurant’s summer menu. Last year, the duo unveiled a special weekly Wednesday night all-you-care-to-eat fried chicken feast and locals lined up to dig in. “People went nuts for it,” said Bernstein. “Our regulars loved it and we also saw a lot of new faces come in to see what Michy’s was all about.” In fact, the promotion was such a hit, that they’re bringing it back starting Wednesday, May 19, 2010.
Available every Wednesday during dinner service, this unbeatable weekly special – priced at $36 per person, excluding tax/gratuity/beverage – features endless helpings of Bernstein’s signature recipe fried chicken – flavorful and crisp, juicy but not greasy – served with a bottomless parade of sides: cornbread, coleslaw, and watermelon Greek salad. The dinner also includes a luscious red velvet cupcake.
Dubbed one of the “Top 50 Restaurants in the Country” by Gourmet and “Best New Restaurant 2006” by Food and Wine, Michy’s is located at 6927 Biscayne Boulevard in Miami. Dinner is served Tuesday – Thursday, 6:30-11:00 p.m., Friday & Saturday, 6:00-11:30 p.m., and Sunday, from 6:00-10:00 p.m. Reservations are suggested. Telephone: (305) 759-2001.
