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.

Situated on Collins Avenue at the bustling center of South Beach, 1826 Restaurant & Lounge offers contemporary American cuisine with a focus on elegant dishes in a stylishly modern setting.<br />Through classic French training and forward-thinking vision, two Michelin-starred and 2012 Food & Wine Best New Chef Danny Grant and his team are poised to deliver a thoughtful experience that will leave you wanting more. Highly refined yet approachable, the seasonally driven menu builds flavor through every detail by embracing local, regional and luxury ingredients.<br />While its sea blue all-glass exterior implies quiet exclusivity, the inside is attuned to a level of wow with its A-list and food-conscious clientele.<br />Following dinner, stop by the lounge for a nightcap and prime people watching, as the best of lounge music create a global vibe that is pervasively South Beach.<br />
