It was only a matter of time, right? Michael Schwartz will follow up his two Michael's Genuine Food & Drink locations in Miami and Grand Cayman with Harry's Pizzeria, a "casual neighborhood joint featuring the chef/restaurateur's fresh, simple, pure, and local food anchored by seasonally-inspired pizzas from the wood-burning oven."
Named after Michael's son, Harrison, Harry's will occupy with former Pizza Volante space at 3918 North Miami Avenue, two blocks from the flagship location. The restaurant is planed for early fall and will feature a bar featuring craft beers and a creative wine list, espresso from Panther Coffee, and a focused menu of pizzas and salads "coupled with the relaxed, unpretentious vibe on which Michael's Genuine has built its reputation."
Thanks Michael, with the impending opening of stores like Louis Vuitton in the Design District, we need someone to keep the neighborhood grounded.
