Miami Beach, FL (November 21, 2016)—For the fourth consecutive year, celebrated Miami chef, Michelle Bernstein will be operating the outdoor Garden Café at Miami Beach Botanical Garden during Art Basel Miami Beach.
The Garden Cafè will be open from Monday, November 28th through Sunday, December 4th.
As in years past, the offerings will include artisanal sandwiches, salads, soups and baked goods, similar to the fare offered at Bernstein’s popular cafe in Miami’s Design District, Crumb on Parchment.
Kahwa Coffee from Tampa Bay, Florida, who made their South Florida debut at the Garden Café several years ago, will be back with their funky coffee truck.
“I’m so happy to be a part of Art Basel again this year. I think its one of the most important events of the year for Miami as a destination. It really has become the un-official kick-off to our tourism season. We’ll have some great new dishes at the Garden Café this year, which I’m excited for everyone to try,” said Bernstein.
The hours for the Garden Café are:
The Miami Beach Botanical Garden is located at 2000 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, Florida 33139, directly across from the Miami Beach Convention Center.
Bernstein will also be operating Michy’s, a seated restaurant in the VIP-only Collectors Lounge in the Miami Beach Convention Center, from November 8th through December 4th.
