Owned by chef Michael Schwartz, Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink remains true to its name by using fresh local produce and ingredients. Try delicacies like whole-roasted dayboat fish straight from the wood oven, or beet and heirloom tomato salad. Each week enjoy a new “cheese of the week” served with fresh mango chutney, and stop by for Sunday brunch to sample breakfast pizza, lemon ricotta pancakes, and more. You won’t have trouble keeping up with the ever-changing selections; Michael’s keeps you updated by tweeting the new menu items. Don’t forget to come enjoy half-price drinks during Happy Hour, every Monday through Friday.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

For his latest restaurant, chef Michael Schwartz (formerly of <strong>Nemo</strong>) chose Miami’s Design District, best known for its stylish shops. His excellent menu ranges from small snacks like deviled eggs to very large roasted local snapper. The wood-fired oven produces many of the best items, including pizza topped with slow-cooked pork and fontina.

We loved: Crisp hominy with chile and lime; grilled local swordfish with artichokes.
