Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

Michelle Bernstein returns as host of WPBT's popular television show Check, Please! South Florida, and Season 2 , which premieres Monday, March 9th, promises to contain almost as many new twists as the latest episodes of Lost.

On second thought, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit; there are really only

two changes. First difference viewers will notice is the refurbished

set (pictured in photos), donated and designed by IKEA Sunrise. No one

will dispute that it is much snazzier than the former backdrop.


addition will be a short segment in which Michelle demos a quick-fix

recipe. Over the span of five episodes that just wrapped filming,

Bernstein will whip up guacamole, ceviche, penne a la vodka, fish &

chips, and sangría. Coincidentally, that's what I had for dinner last

 The  format is otherwise the same, which means a panel composed of three

regular folk such as this season's Coral Gables school teacher, Palm

Beach County town commissioner, and Ft. Lauderdale actor, each

escorting the others to their preferred dining spot (from Jupiter to

Homestead). Then they sit at a table with Michelle and offer their

reviews. This is great, because you can get a wide breadth of opinions

from real people, as opposed to having to rely on a single, puffed-up,

so-called "expert" and his irresponsibly subjective viewpoints.

Wait a minute, I just thought of something...

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
