Miami-renowned chef Michelle Bernstein and modern day renaissance man/restauranteur Jeffrey Chodorow are teaming up to bring private dining to the restaurant space in Five Park Miami Beach. The project has hinted at a signature restaurant since the official launch in the summer of 2021, and now we have details.

The Culinary Concept

The new eatery will be located on the 6th floor amenity terrace, which is convenient to both the main pool and the family pool. With an open air indoor/outdoor design, guests will enjoy vibrant Mediterranean fusion dishes in the restaurant or poolside overlooking the Biscayne Bay and Downtown Miami skyline. There are seating options for intimate and romantic celebrations or for spirited groups. For larger parties or family-style events, a separate outdoor dining area is available. The signature pedestrian bridge will connect here, allowing guests to take a leisurely stroll to South of Fifth before or after visiting the restaurant.

On the 26th floor, Five Park will also offer the exclusive Canopy Club. This is an exclusive social club for residents of Five Park Miami Beach and their guests only. The food and beverage offerings at the Canopy Club will also be curated by Bernstein, who is known for her dynamic and inspired menu offerings.

The Culinary Team

Many locals will already be familiar with Michelle Bernstein. As a Miami native, many of her restaurants are local staples and she has also earned a coveted James Beard Award for “Best Chef in the South.” She also beat Bobby Flay on Iron Chef early in her career, so she is a force to pay attention to in the kitchen.

You can currently find her dishes at the Michelin-starred Cafe la Trova in Little Havana as well as Sweet Liberty, La Cañita or Little Liberty. She is also a regular at culinary festivals throughout the county.

Jeffrey Chodorow is also well-known in the world of restaurants, getting his first taste of success in New York City with mega-establishments like China Grill and Bond Street in Hudson Yards. Although his first career successes came in New York, Chodorow is a Miami-area native.

He was raised in Miami Beach and has had an extremely colorful career. He is something of a modern-day renaissance man, starting out as the CEO of an airline before pivoting into restaurants. The culinary industry offered the opportunity for risk taking and flashy concepts, both of which excited Chodorow. If you have a penchant for drama, you can find one of his culinary adventures on the Netflix movie, “Bad Vegan.”

Although Bad Vegan ended dramatically, it demonstrated Chodorow’s eagerness for adventure and being cutting-edge. This was also just one of dozens of concepts he has helmed.

The two will be pairing up for their debut into the private dining scene that has taken off over the last year as the hot new amenity to include in new developments. The private restaurant in Five Park will be unique and cutting-edge with one of the best views the city has to offer.

Five Park Tower

Having recently topped-off at 48-stories and 519-feet, Five Park will be the tallest tower on South Beach. In addition to the panoramic views, developers Terra Group and GFO Investments have contributed a 3-acre park to the City of Miami Beach. This “Canopy Park” creates a backyard community feeling with art installations, a Monstrom Playground, pet play areas and performance pavilions.

Inside the tower at 500 Alton Road, residents will find 98 condo residences and 180 park residences. The condos are located on floors 30 to 48 with park residences being located on the mid-level floors. Select residences are available for purchase with prices from $2.7 million for a 1,357-square-foot layout with two bedrooms, tw0 and a half baths and direct bay views from each room. 

The project is slated for completion later this year.
