With an innovative farmers' market-meets-bistro setting, chef Michal Schwartz of Michael’s Genuine is producing some of the most delicious & flavorsome locally-grown American comfort food in the region. Consciously moving away from the typical glossy overpriced see-and-be-seen eaterie that tends to be common in South Beach, Michael’s Genuine is constantly packed with hungry locals and discerning foodies alike for his innovative, simple and fresh home-style cuisine. Set within the hip Design District with warm, understated-chic interiors, savour the succulent flavours of his crispy skin roasted poulet rouge chicken, the infinitely tender wood-fired pork shoulder with a rich sauce of anchovies, capers and parsley; and his tangy the black grouper ceviche with sweet orange, papaya and avocado. The desserts are also pure indulgence, with creations such his lemon meringue tart, or caramelised bananas served with lashings of home made vanilla ice cream. The affordable pricing is as wonderful as the cuisine, with a great value menu and wine list. Worth the short trek from South Beach. Bookings advised.
