Prep Rally! Back to School, After School Pizza Party at Harry’s Coconut Grove

HP Back to School Pizza Party

Pencils are sharpened, bookbags have been flared and first day outfits chosen, so it’s time to roll out spheres of pi and fire up the Gallus gallus domesticus!  Michael Schwartz’s neighborhood American pizzeria in Coconut Grove is ready for Back to School and taking its role as the neighborhood’s unofficial headquarters pretty seriously.  That’s right students and families… Giant polenta fry tower seriously!

Join us at 2996 McFarlane Road on Wednesday, August 24 from 3-6PM for Harry’s Pizzeria®’s Back to School, After School Pizza Party!  Kids of all ages can enjoy a specially-priced menu of Harry’s favorites — Meatballs in Sauce, Wood Oven Chicken Wings and Margherita Pizza — for $19 to share, excluding tax and gratuity. The fun is coming out of the kitchen with Giant Polenta Fry Towers for $12 each, available as an a la carte special.  Bend the rules or see how long you can play before succumbing to the crispy morsels! Seating is first come, first served for pizza party guests arriving any time from 3-6PM (which also coincides with the restaurant’s Happy Hour, Adults!)  Harry’s full regular menu will also be available.  Questions?  Cheer squad feedback?  Call the restaurant at 786.655.0121.

The Daily Scramble: Back to School for the ellas

Today the kids are headed back to school!  For the grown up ones like Michael’s eldest daughter Ella, today is the start of a new adventure. COLLEGE.  Freshman year is so exciting.  So much to absorb, new routines to learn, new people to meet.  Daddy Schwartz called upon Dr. Seuss for the words to say goodbye and good luck as his eldest chickie flew the coop for Tulane University this weekend: “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”

And since you are smart like Ms. Schwartz, you know you can’t start the day, especially the first day back to school, without a good breakfast.  ella has your back thanks to some additions to the breakfast line up that happened over the weekend!  This morning began in hypermode as Miami artist Alejandro Contreras (our friend from Design Miami’s past) put the finishing touches on our new blackboard to complete last night’s vinyl installation. Kitchen manager Vanessa Nunez put out the cafe’s first Daily Scramble, two eggs, today with caramelized onions and herbs, with True Loaf wheat toast.  Alejandro should have an extra kick in his step today, especially after that $350 macchiato (I fixed the decimal point.  Where’s my refund!?)  

AlejandroThose looking for gluten-free options have many things to choose from on the current menu, but we are also pleased to now offer the sandwiches and other dishes with gluten-free bread upon request!  Zak the Baker’s gluten-free chocolate almond cookies also came in to satisfy those sweet teeth out there.  Enjoy getting scrambled, take a seat under the shade in Palm Court and ease into the school year.  Fall’s almost here!  Please find the updated menu at!
