Prepare for a dining experience where passion, talent, and love come together both in and out of the kitchen. Michelle Berstein and David, partners at the restaurant and in real life (yes, they're married!) make the perfect pairing that extends beyond the kitchen.

Michelle Bernstein is a James Beard Award winning celebrity chef, television personality, cookbook author and restaurateur. Bernstein and David own and run Miami hot spots Cafe La Trova, Sweet Liberty, La Cañita and Senora Martinez. This perfect pair will be joined by Gio Gutierrez (aka @ChatChowTV), who is the Miami authority on all things Cuban and all things cocktail! Together, these three have a combination of culinary excellence and mixology prowess, who individually and collectively have left a lasting mark on Miami's dining and beverage scene.

Under the guidance of Michelle, David, and Gio, this will be food and drinks for your soul. And your belly. And of course there will be music – and dancing. Sabor and Salsa. The perfect pairing – indeed!
