We’re officially two weeks away from opening in Grand Cayman! The Michael’s Genuine island team is doing fantastic work to get us ready. This week is staff orientation and the back of the house is doing some serious kitchen warm-up. Thomas and Thais are like kids in a candy store; everything’s brand new!
There are lots of new faces to welcome, and people to get to know including new assistant managers Chad Bahadur and Elizabeth Simms, as well as lead hostesses Jennifer Johnston (dinner) and Beth Clarke (lunch.)
Please find our opening press release below and some new behind the scenes photos courtesy of manager Leilani De Leon. We now also have Twitter accounts for both restaurants, so follow @MGFD_MIA (which I run) and @MGFD_GCM (which Leilani runs) for immediate news, happenings, and photos that are specific to each property.
Michael will be back in Miami quickly on June 8, flying out June 9 in keeping with the 14 day immigration rule. Then I head down, with a care package of mainland goodies. See you all on June 10! Can’t wait!
