Michael's Genuine Food and Drink ♥ ♥


They say it is one of the musts in Miami.

Even my supercrush Anthony Bourdain thinks so.

Michael Schwartz champions fresh, sustainable local produce and mix-matches it with fun, unexpected ingredients.

That, to me, is always a winner.

The place was packed on a Tuesday night. So glad we came with reservations.
Meet my new best friend, :)



It was so dark and red inside Michael's. While it was perfect for people who enjoy a little coquetry and romancing with their dinner, it turned out really bad for me and my photos.

Bread and whipped butter



 We ordered 3 medium dishes + dessert to share.

Chocolate Cremoso
sea salt, olive oil, sourdough crostini, espresso parfait 



The ingredients tasted fresh indeed, but somehow it felt more exciting reading through the menu than actually eating the food.

Flavors were mediocre. Something was missing.

Or perhaps, someone was missing.

Next time I'll invite Anthony Bourdain.
