Michael’s Genuine, located in the Design District, is one of my FAVORITE restaurants in Miami, without a doubt.
With a party of five, it’s easy to try mostly everything on the menu. Some highlights in our appetizers included… Duck Confit, Snapper Ceviche, and Chicken Wings (an all-time classic). The ceviche, my pick, was light and citrusy .. the touch of mint, however, really made the dish. The chicken wings were delectable as well.
For dinner there were a few stand out dishes. The Porterhouse steak, snapper, and pan-roasted chicken. We also ordered a side of mashed potatoes and pesto roasted cauliflower. Recommend both.
The best part of the dinner had to be the dessert. The warm apple tart with vanilla ice cream which seems rather commonplace, was out of this world. Also, the very popular “banana/caramel paninis” with warm chocolate sauce was gone within seconds.
