Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink

restaurants / American

Lonely Planet review

The ‘genuine’ in Michael Schwartz’ restaurant name refers to its use of locally sourced ingredients and healthy dose of innovation, moderated by its respect for the classics. Hence, the pork shoulder in parsley sauce and cheese grits that taste as though your grandma has just became a cordon-bleu chef. The chocolate-and-red interior feels cheerful and welcoming rather than snobbish and intimidating, and that goes for the attentive waitstaff as well.
