There's so much to love about Restaurant Michael Schwartz. For starters, there's the idyllic poolside setting, which makes for one of the most outstanding outdoor dining experiences on the Beach. Then you have a menu overseen by one of Miami's most acclaimed chef-restaurateurs, Michael Schwartz. Best of all, you've got a dessert list created by executive pastry chef and James Beard Award finalist Hedy Goldsmith. If you visit in a party of four or more, the family-style pie à la mode (flavors change regularly) served with homemade ice cream ($36) is haute comfort food at its finest. Meanwhile, the tangerine creamsicle pot de crème ($12) features custard dotted with vanilla beans and three warm, fluffy doughnuts. The desserts here are anything but ordinary. But they're not gimmicky or pretentious, and that's definitely something to love.
