Design District darling and James-Beard award-winning chef Michelle Bernstein has launched¬† a new venture in the area and brought her Mom along for the ride. It’s called Crumb on Parchment and is a winner.

Just steps away from her well-known Sra. Martinez, she can shuffle back and forth from one place to the other and not miss a beat. As strange as that may sound it’s true, she is right there in the open area where the sandwiches, soups, sides, everything’s being prepared, alongside her staff working.

Definite must haves are the roasted veggie sandwich with creamy cheese and tasty aioli and the roasted chicken with goat cheese and peaches, each a winner. Tasty couscous or one of their homemade soups like red gazpacho, lentil and chilled cauliflower make great sides. And for dessert, Mom makes a mile-high coconut cake that’s a stunner, moist classic red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting as well as assorted scones and muffins which are perfect for breakfast.

Crumb on Parchment is located at 3930 NE 2nd Ave., Miami, FL 305-572-9444, www.facebook.com/crumbmiami
