Michael's Genuine Food & Drink
According to Michael Schwartz, winner of the 2010 James Beard Award for Best Southern Chef, the most important thing you can take away from dining at his2008 New York Times top-10 establishment and 2013 Golden Spoons Florida Trend Award winner is: “Know Your Source.” Menus at Michael’s Genuine change daily, and it’s often been mere hours since the ingredients on your plate left the field or the water. The restaurant; for instance, procures its organic eggs from PNS Farms, home of supposedly the happiest chickens on earth. Heirloom tomatoes figure not only on the menu here but also as décor in the minimalist dining room. Such dishes as Spring Creek oysters with classic mignonette, duck confit with orange marmalade and frisée, and grilled Palmetto Creek pork chop with tomato chutney define the restaurant's motto of "Fresh, Simple, Pure."
