Michael's Genuine Food & Drink


Michael's Genuine Food & Drink Review

James Beard Award–winning chef Michael Schwartz and handpicked original executive chef Thomas Tennant successfully imported the slow-food philosophy of the groundbreaking Michael's Genuine in Miami. Seasonal menu items come from the on-site garden, and from carefully chosen Cayman farmers, fishermen, and ranchers. The results live up to the Schwartz mantra of "fresh, simple, pure": honest, uncluttered food. Lunch offers a more traditional but lengthy selection, whereas dinner dishes come in small, medium, and large portions: perfect for family sharing. The ever-changing menu includes burrata and crispy sweet-and-sour pork belly, and wood-oven-roasted dishes like pizza, snapper, or poulet rouge chicken. The well-considered wine list offers occasional bargains. Tennant had also devised an inspired solution to the invasive lionfish population: look for it as a menu special, and if you dive, ask about the Lionfish Safari.
