Fodor's Expert Review Michael's Genuine Food & Drink

$$$ Design District American Fodor's Choice

Michael's is often cited as Miami's top restaurant, and it's not hard to see why: this indoor-outdoor bistro in Miami's Design District is an evergreen oasis for Miami dining sophisticates. Owner and chef Michael Schwartz aims for sophisticated American cuisine with an emphasis on local and organic ingredients, and he gets it right. Portions are divided into small, medium, and large plates; the smaller plates are more inventive, so you can order several and explore. Beautifully arranged combinations like crispy, sweet-and-spicy pork belly with kimchi explode with unlikely but satisfying flavor. Reserve two weeks in advance for weekend tables; also, consider brunch, but still make those reservations far in advance.
