When Michael Schwartz opened Michael's Genuine Food & Drink in Miami's Design District In 2007 it instantly became "the" place to go.  Other than the fact that chef Schwartz was already well known from his work at other restaurants and had a following, as its name indicates, Michael's Genuine is about unpretentious food, sustainable practices, and an atmosphere friendly to both environment and community.

It was followed In 2009, by a Michael's Genuine Food & Drink in Grand Cayman… and  now Michael Schwartz is sharing some of his recipes in his first book, Michael's Genuine Food—Down to Earth Cooking for People Who Love to Eat.

 Michael is a strong believer in letting the ingredients and season dictate the dish in his Farm to Table cuisine.

A self taught chef who beat out some culinary stars from New Orleans, Atlanta and Palm Beach when you he the James Beard Award as Best Chef of the South, says “the secret to good food is……..good food.”
