Are you a superfan of Miami celeb chef Michelle Bernstein? If so, be one of the first to try her newest culinary creation. The award-winning cook is whipping up her inaugural vegan dinner at Plant Miami today.

Bernstein is known for her fresh, flavorful, Latin-inspired cooking, and she'll bring her signature style to this plant-based evening under the stars. The James Beard Award-winning restaurateur will join Plant Miami chefs Horacio Rivadero and Veronica Manolizi for the special event.

The dinner kicks off at 7 p.m., and tickets cost $125 per person.

"I am thrilled to join [Sacred Space owner Karla Dascal] and [director of sacred connections Gingi Beltran], first and foremost as they are two beautifully strong, intelligent businesswomen," Bernstein says. "Selfishly, I have been wanting to up my vegan game and test some ideas I have had but wasn't sure how to execute. I've learned so much already and can't wait for everyone to try some of my new creations."

An omnivore, Bernstein clarifies that the food will be as satisfying and delicious as the other kinds of cuisine she creates. "The flavors are all there, just as much punch of flavor and passion in ingredients — even some chew, fattiness, and creaminess. It's incredibly satisfying, and you won't miss that gram of butter."

The dishes will be paired with biodynamic wines and craft cocktails. Though the full menu hasn't been revealed yet, Bernstein mentions a couple of inclusions: "Oaxacan trumpet mushroom mole and plantain gnocchi."

Michelle Bernstein Chef Takeover. 7 p.m. Monday, May 21, at Plant Miami, 105 NE 24th St., Miami; 305-814-5365; Tickets cost $125 via
