Michael is in Washington D.C. today for the Heart’s Delight Wine Tasting & Auction with master winemakers, chefs and distinguished guests who will play and bid in the Nation’s Capital to benefit the American Heart Association. Chef’s friend and first Harry’s pop-up victim Gabrielle Hamilton has participated for the past four years and this weekend joins new Chicago contingent Paul Kahan, Graham Elliot, and Stephanie Izard, as well as Boston’s Jamie Bissonette, David Myer from Los Angeles… You get the picture.
Line cook Keith Kalmanowicz is sitting shotgun as Chef serves attendees Pan Roasted Confit of Lamb with fava beans, mint & onion sauce. But what should they be eating while they’re in town?
We asked our esteemed brand/PR intern to spill the beans, Victoria Calleja currently of Georgetown University and as of May 21, our 39th street office for her second summer with The Genuine Hospitality Group. She delivered the goods with the above camera phone gallery depicting the following trustworthy hit list (left to right) any #foodcrazy can appreciate. Trust us, and so should Schwartz!
- This is my favorite shrimp burger from Proof: Proof Shrimp Burger, jalapeno, shaved cucumber, cilantro, pickled daikon & carrots
- The lobster risotto is from Graffiato
- The dumplings (spring vegetable dumpling, but I can’t find the description anywhere!) are from The Source
FriendsWithYou got crafty in our bathroom last month. Now they're opening up a can in the main dining room, just in time for Art Basel.
It’s time to freshen up our events page, and let you know where for the rest of the year you can find our food and talent when they’re not at our restaurants. And then things really get interesting in 2012, in the Caymans and Miami. Can we say food festival madness? Here’s our race to the 2011 finish, below.

It’s playtime! Part of the fun of having a new home is the housewarming, so we’ve invited some of our talented friends to come cook at Harry’s Pizzeria. We’re kicking off our chef pop-up series by welcoming acclaimed chef and author Gabrielle Hamilton of Prune restaurant in New York City. The venue will transform into an intimate setting for a special Sunday Supper celebrating Blood, Bones & Butter, Gabrielle’s new memoir that she’ll be in town promoting at the Miami Book Fair International on Saturday, November 19. Ever since Gabrielle dined at Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink in the spring, we have been itching to collaborate in some way. Well the time is now! She comes to us Sunday, November 20. Tickets are now available for purchase online and each come with a signed book. For the current list of scheduled chef pop-ups, visit Harry’s website!
