“I know it sounds like a bit of an exaggeration, but everything on the menu really is delicious. The food is never fussy, and the ingredients are so fresh. Chef Michael Schwartz does incredible things with fish. I always order the whole fish. For lunch I like the burrata with tomatoes.” —Craig Robins

CATCH: Eat the dessert platter at Michael's!
I'm a foodie. And so when I went to Miami for the first time I got my friend to go to dinner with me at Michael's Genuine Food & Drink. The whole meal was incredible and worth all the rave reviews and even the pricey tab. Our favorite part, however, was the dessert platter. We couldn't decide what we wanted to try the most so we went along our server's suggestion and ordered the platter of Chef Michael and his pastry chef's favorite things. It consists of their version of treats like girl scout cookies, peanut butter cups, peanut brittle, Oreo cookies.. you get the idea. I still dream about that Oreo cookie! You must absolutely check out Michael's!
Fresh, simple, and pure is what Michael's Genuine Food & Drink promises and delivers with locally sourced food. Even a simple salad had me savoring every bite.
The short rib and fontina cheese panino with heirloom tomato chutney, and the slow roasted berkshire pork pizza with mission figs, grilled onions, fontina cheese, and arugula were the bomb.
