Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink is possibly one of the best food experiences Miami has to offer. Set in the funky Design District, Chef/Owner Michael Schwartz has created a casual bistro, which is an ode to “Genuine Food & Drink”.
Michael Schwartz is a leader in the farm to table movement and was recently awarded the prestigious 2010 James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef: South.
Schwartz’s passion for the freshest, finest ingredients is evident in the truly superb fare he has to offer. Each dish is composed in honor of every component that has been utilized. The results are just divine.
I love that there are no pretensions here. People come here to enjoy simple New American, ingredient-driven cuisine at really affordable prices and I’m all about that!
