Since Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink first opened in the Miami Design District in spring of 2007, diners have come to embrace and crave its refreshing combination of laid-back atmosphere and seriously good food, a neighborhood bistro that is the ultimate showcase for the type of cuisine that James Beard Award-winning chef/owner Michael Schwartz does best – homemade, unpretentious, delectable, with an emphasis on great local ingredients.
Our main dining room and courtyard seat 110, and The Bar Room, an additional 16, with 24 more seats at a welcoming bar where guests can enjoy our Afternoon Menu including raw bar from 3pm-5:30pm Monday through Saturday. 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 playfully decadent childhood treats and lemon ricotta pancakes — it’s the perfect way to spend the last day of the weekend soaking up the shade-dappled sunshine, alfresco. Our restaurant is located in the vibrant Design District neighborhood, fashion’s new playground in Miami.
The raw bar welcomes you to the restaurant, greeting you at the entrance and as a great way to start a meal.
