Featured Restaurant: Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink
Michael Symon and Scott Conant both love the desserts at Michael’s Genuine (see Lemon Creamsicle and Popcorn and Peanuts on The Best Thing I Ever Ate). But for savory satisfaction, nothing quite compares to beloved brunch favorite Roasted Double Yolk Egg with eggs and melted gruyere.
Since 2007, Michael’s flagship restaurant has defined Genuine Hospitality, the special experience that results when delicious food and thoughtful service come together, designed by a team who cares about great product and making people happy. Locals and visitors alike embrace and crave this unique approach to dining out — some may consider Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink a second home, a place where they’re comfortable, that they want to share with friends.
From the moment you walk through the door, greeted with a smile and oysters piled high on the raw bar, the energy of our main dining room is palpable. The action emanates from our open kitchen, food bar stacked with fresh ingredients and our cooks bustling about, stoking the wood oven’s flames as whole fish, chicken, vegetables and pizzas fly in and out. Choose a table or cozy booth indoors under the warm glow of our red lanterns or settle into the sun-speckled courtyard. Our welcoming bar is always a friendly choice, whether for lunch, dinner, or a midday break with our afternoon menu served from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Enjoy 1/2 off oysters, snacks, cocktails, wine and beer at Happy Hour weekdays from 4:30-7:30 p.m. beginning Tuesday, March 14. Sunday Brunch is where our small plates shine on a weekly-changing menu of savory and sweet including everything from breakfast pizza topped with a local farm egg and house smoked bacon to decadent treats like sticky toffee buns and lemon ricotta pancakes — it’s the perfect, memorable way to spend the last day of the weekend.
The restaurant is located in the heart of the Miami Design District and easily accessible whether for a quick layover meal from the airport or zipping over the causeway from Miami Beach. Look for the blue Design District valet stands from $5 on both 40th and 39th Streets, as well as affordable and convenient street or garage parking. We look forward to welcoming you and feeding you well!
