    Chef Michael replaced the tomatoes in the Burrata with peaches! Sounds strange, but it's crazy good

    The food was delicious and the service was outstanding! My favorite things were the duck confit, Crispy Sweet & Spicy Pork Belly, Pastrami Sandwich, and the Harris Ranch Black Angus Burger.

    Not the service !!!! Lots of staff just milling around thinking that they have it going. But not action with the service the manager needs to get it together and start managing his staff to ... serve

    Try the Red Hot cocktail

    I've never had anything bad at Michael's. The menu changes so often that I usually ask the waiter and go with many of his suggestions, but tough to go wrong. Sit outside if you can!

    Best brunch in America? Always changes but the he kimchi bloody and the cherry Rosemary soda should not be ignored

    ZZubin · November 30, 2014
  • Carolina B.

    This place is genuine as its name implies. Try the pig ears (chicharrones on steroids) and the grouper tartar is special! Dessert a must! The flan is so so creamy that it taste like a warmer ice cream

    Carolina Borberg · November 29, 2014

    Try fresh stracciatella with Florida heirloom tomatoes; honeycrisp apple salad with pumpkin seeds and goat cheese; sweet and spicy pork belly with kimchee and peanuts; and rotating wood-fired pizzas. Read more

    The pork belly, panzanella, and buttered lettuce ring up right at the top of your budget at $15. Read more

    Good, fresh and contemporary food! The grilled spiced leg of lamb is second to none! And it goes very well with a Stoned Arrogant Bastard Ale!
