Abiaka at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood will host James Beard Award-winning Chef Michelle Bernstein for a four-day culinary pop-up, from September 28 through October 1, in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. The pop-up will offer guests a glimpse into the dynamic food, drinks, and entertainment coming to Bernstein’s highly anticipated new restaurant, Sra. Martinez, slated to open in early 2024 in Coral Gables.
The new concept is a modern take on the beloved, award-winning Sra. Martinez from hospitality power duo Chef Bernstein and David Martinez. The concept originally opened in the Miami Design District in 2008. That same year, Bernstein became the first woman to win the James Beard Award for “Best Chef: Southeast,” and Sra. Martinez soon earned recognition as one of “America’s Best Restaurants” (Esquire, 2009).
The pop-up at Abiaka promises to bring an experiential and exciting dining, cocktail, and live music scene to guests. The cuisine will be rooted in Spain, with influences and flavors inspired by Bernstein’s global travels. A significant portion of the menu will come out of Abiaka’s signature woodfire oven offering nuanced flavors to the dishes; and the elevated beverage program and lively bar scene will be front and center.
