Since 2007, Michael’s flagship restaurant has defined Genuine Hospitality

The special experience that results when delicious food and thoughtful service come together, designed by a team who cares about great product and making people happy.
Locals and visitors alike embrace and crave this unique approach to dining out — some may consider Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink a second home, a place where
they’re comfortable, that they want to share with friends.
From the moment you walk through the door, greeted with a smile, the energy of our main dining room is palpable. The action emanates from our open kitchen, and our cooks bustling about, stoking the wood oven’s flames as whole fish, chicken, vegetables and pizzas fly in and out. Choose a table or cozy booth indoors, or settle into the sun-speckled courtyard. Our welcoming bar is always a friendly choice, whether for lunch, dinner, or a midday break. 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 decadent treats like sticky toffee buns and lemon ricotta pancakes—it’s the perfect, memorable way to spend the last day of the weekend.
The restaurant is located in the heart of the Miami Design District and easily accessible whether for a quick layover meal from the airport or zipping over the causeway from Miami Beach. We look forward to welcoming you and feeding you well!
