“I feel like Miami is a place you can make a name for yourself, you know what I mean? I grew up in Boca but I’ve now been here for 6 years. There’s this energy here – I think in their own way, everyone is trying to make this a better city. The restaurant community here is amazingly supportive and makes you feel part of something bigger than yourself. We’re a city that gets more excited over a little restaurant opening by a home-grown chef than we are about international chefs coming in.”
