Description: Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink is a showcase for the cuisine of Chef/Owner Michael Schwartz, with prices designed to encourage frequent dining. This unpretentious bistro seats 90 indoors and out, with another 14 seats at a handsome bar. Doubling as a casual neighborhood dining spot and a culinary destination, the bright, airy space in Miami’s evolving Design District showcases Schwartz’s trademark new American cuisine at prices designed to encourage frequent dining. Open daily for lunch and dinner, the menu is chock full of choices encouraging everything from a light bite to a multi-course feast. A quick glance at the menu and Michael's intentions for this restaurant are revealed. Notable is the frequency of the word homemade in the descriptions of dishes -- be it pasta, French fries or rabbit terrine. At the same time, Michael's takes advantage of the Chef’s decades-long relationships with winemakers to offer diners the opportunity to try a variety of wines at great value.

I love this place. It's one of those gems that the chef owner still cooks for you, even after he's hit stardom (and financial success). He's culture is carried across his staff, and the product is evidence of that. I also love the jazz that is played from the speakers, word from the waiters is that it's the owners iPod on shuffle. Gotta give it to him, great taste in food, great taste in music.

We visted while on vacation from Guatemala and wish we had
something similar to Michaels back home.

We had the fish and a sandwich and both were fantastic.

Comfortable surroundings and great service too.

Innovative and adventurous ... one of three of Michaels restaurants all worth the trip.

This one was a little loud and cramped. Depending on where you sat the provided wraps for the ladies because of the air conditioning.

Micheal's has an excellent reputation for good food which is well deserving. Any thing on the menu is good but go for the deviled eyes they will make your taste buds beg for more!
