We take brunch seriously. Seriously fun! It’s hard to imagine that in October we will celebrate 10 years of brunch service at our flagship restaurant in Miami. Our favorite weekend pastime at Michael’s Genuine launched a year and a half after opening. Chef took his time figuring it out, but he knew what he didn’t want — Sunday wasn’t going to be a line of glowing red lamps. After a whirlwind of planning, our busiest service yet shifted into gear on October 25, 2009 and hasn’t let up since. Now it’s time for Cleveland to join the party, with chef de cuisine Vinnie Cimino in the driver’s seat, and we aren’t wasting any time greasing the wheels. Expect the unexpected, beginning Mother’s Day Sunday, May 12! Click the menu below for a preview.
“Brunch is my favorite meal of the week and always an opportunity to go for it, so why not make food to order and bring the buffet to guests at the table,” says Michael. “It’s a marathon service for the kitchen, but we are better for it and can have some fun making a new menu each week. The challenge keeps things dialed in — thinking of new ways to approach things and to utilize ingredients. It’s interesting for Cleveland, because we kind of know what we are doing now with this format. We are really excited to share something we have grown to love with Cleveland and see how they respond!”
Beginning this Sunday, 10:30am – 2:30pm, enjoy our weekly Brunch service including savory and sweet small plates, and special Brunch cocktails like our signature Kimchi Bloody Mary with vodka, kimchi and skewered rock shrimp — the best!
