CARRIE MANGO TREE DEDICATION: Saturday, July 13 at 11am
It takes a village! Join Miami City Commissioner Ken Russell, Chef Michael Schwartz, The Kampong Director Craig Morell, our Park Grove friends and award-winning food writer, Miami native and mango enthusiast Victoria Pesce Elliott for a short and sweet ceremony honoring the National Tropical Botanical Garden that calls Coconut Grove home with a tree we can all stand behind.

IT’S GETTING CROUGHNUTS IN HERE: Friday, July 12 – Sunday, July 14 from 8am to 3pm
Michael’s Croughnut collab with our friends at The Salty Donut is too yummy to miss! Not to mention, grammable. Check out what happened when Miami’s beloved James Beard Award-winning chef mashed up with the city’s favorite artisanal donut shoppe! Watch a winning recipe come together behind the scenes on The Salty Donut’s IG. Friday’s donuts are on us! Limit one per guest, while supplies last.
You may have figured out we love an illustration or two especially art inspired by our surroundings, so we are especially excited to share in the mango fun with another local plant-obsessed friend of the Genuine family, Jessica “Pooka” Suarez. Enjoy her original Carrie Mango design gracing limited edition high quality stickers this weekend. Each special Croughnut comes with one special sticker, a treat for our guests while supplies last!
Good morning, July! On the heels of the introduction of fresh pasta at Genuine Pizza in Aventura, Harry’s Pizzeria’s menu is getting a summer sheen, adding fresh pasta in a few different forms, five new salads for a total of seven, and new entrées like juicy Chicken Paillard, flash cooked in a ripping hot pan with loads of veggies including broccolini and hearty farro. To start, dip into next level new snacks like panko-breaded crispy mozzarella sticks, large but fluffy with ample zesty tomato sauce for dipping and luscious avocado crostini brightened with a hit of Calabrian chile and lemon zest.
Don’t miss sweet endings like Banana Nutella Pizza, Tiramisu, and Hot Fudge Sundae with vanilla ice cream, wet nuts, amarena cherry and whipped cream, joining Harry’s favorites like Zeppole and Warm Chocolate Chunk Cookie.
Stop by first at our Coconut Grove location where the new menu goes live beginning today and later this summer at Chef Michael Schwartz’s locations South Florida-wide. Visit Harry’s Instagram as we showcase new items on the regular!

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! For a look back at our OG Brunch, five years in, click here. To make a reservation, visit our website.
With respect to those that came before, and laid the groundwork for what a House Cocktail is all about and how it comes to be, we present the classics. New to the Michael’s Genuine bar, a devotion to the old standards that never go out of style and always inspire our creative juices. Beginning today for the immediate future, enjoy our roadmap to explore them with Gabe Urritia of @spiritedmiami and our #mgfdbar team. You’ll find a portrait shot on-site for Instagram and why you should care according to people and cocktail books we trust in the caption, from origin myths to the specialness that makes them memorable.
My new sidekick.
Authentic-Practical-No Bullshit. Just the way we like, well, everything — especially cocktails. A friend of a friend’s tome on the old school stuff for the home bar that applies to most.
The first sip is one familiar in name but an outlier perhaps as a go-to. Rolls off the tongue smooth but maybe has fallen out of favor. From now on that changes, at least for me. I’ve come upon an unlikely new favorite. “Sin azucar” for cafe con leche fix in the morning, but not so after 5pm. The Sidecar effectively delivers a balanced tangy punch because it’s deeply dusted in sugar. No longer are rims reserved for salt in my book. Cheers to that!
Turnover? How about a Rosenhaus Sports takeover! Every Sunday is super at Amara at Paraiso, especially February 3 when it becomes the sexiest sports bar in Miami to watch the big game with its most famous sports agency.
