The Design District has become a hotbed of residential living, like the ultra modern and cool Midtown condominiums near and around the open-air Midtown Miami shopping area as well as dining, they’ve even got an area called “restaurant row,” which continues to thrive and grow.
It’s only fitting then that someone as hot in the chef world as James Beard winner Michelle Bernstein, who already has made a name for herself in the area with her restaurant Sra. Martinez and the nearby Michy’s on Biscayne Boulevard, would re-invent herself with Crumb on Parchment.
The name itself is cool and evokes an immediate visual for any foodie who loves fresh baked goods and sandwiches. What’s cool is that she chose the historic and landmark Melon Building, in the heart of the District (and conveniently just a block away from Martinez), to launch her latest venture.
Located at the center of the building’s ground floor and making perfect use of the filtering sunshine, it’s a neat little cafe with quaint tables and chairs where Bernstein and her mother work side-by-side to make delicious daily changing soups as well as sandwiches and of course, delectable baked goods.
