Our main dining room and courtyard seat 100, and The Gallery private dining room, an additional 30, with 14 more seats at a welcoming bar where guests can enjoy happy hour with our specialty cocktails, diverse craft beer list, and snacks like deviled eggs and crispy hominy with chile and lime. Our menu is further divided into small, medium, large, extra large, sides, and cheese of the week, where we focus on one cheese at a time with a seasonal, housemade accompaniment like local mango chutney. Specialties from the wood oven include whole roasted dayboat fish and Poulet Rouge chickens. Sunday Brunch is where our small plates shine on a weekly-changing menu of savory and sweet including everything from breakfast pizza topped with a local farm egg and house smoked bacon to executive pastry chef Hedy Goldsmith’s playfully decadent childhood treats and lemon ricotta pancakes — it’s the perfect way to spend the last day of the weekend soaking up the Miami sun, alfresco-style.
- The Restaurant Writes...
Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink is a showcase for the cuisine of Chef/Owner Michael Schwartz, with prices designed to encourage frequent dining. This unpretentious bistro seats 90 indoors and out, with another 14 seats at a handsome bar. Doubling as a casual neighborhood dining spot and a culinary destination, the bright, airy space in Miami’s evolving Design District showcases Schwartz’s trademark new American cuisine at prices designed to encourage frequent dining. Open daily for lunch and dinner, the menu is chock full of choices encouraging everything from a light bite to a multi-course feast. A quick glance at the menu and Michael's intentions for this restaurant are revealed. Notable is the frequency of the word homemade in the descriptions of dishes -- be it pasta, French fries or rabbit terrine. At the same time, Michael's takes advantage of the Chef’s decades-long relationships with winemakers to offer diners the opportunity to try a variety of wines at great value.
