Location Description:

Located in the iconic Raleigh Hotel, Restaurant Michael Schwartz offers the prettiest outdoor dining in South Beach. It also bears the name of Miami's most revered chef. The restaurant serves spa-like dishes such as mussels in saffron broth, grilled octopus, and grouper ceviche -- a bright medley of raw fish, chilies, avocado, citrus, and red onion. But it also proffers Schwartz classics: thick-cut potato chips with pan-fried onion dip, golden poulet rouge chicken, and pan-roasted local fish. It all comes at a high price; even a light lunch for two can cost more than $100. The lovely view is worth the expense. On the poolside patio, beneath the sea grape tree hung with lanterns and orchids, it's always a nice time for dinner and drinks.
