Michael Schwartz, along with executive chef and Miami native Stephen Ullrich, has returned to the style of cooking, food, and eating that made his first restaurant, Michael's Genuine Food & Drink, such a delight and keeps it thriving to this day. Tigertail + Mary's menu is split into the familiar format of snacks alongside raw dishes, pizza, pasta, and small and large plates. The main difference here is the vegetable section, which has been billed as the highlight of the menu, making the eatery a "vegetable-forward" concept where produce offerings outnumber proteins. Asparagus and morels is a classic executed with deftness. In addition to running the vegetables, the kitchen boasts an impressive roster of seafood. The biggest hit so far has been the suckling pig. The whole beast is broken down into primal cuts and slowly cooked in fat with orange oil and star anise. Once it's tender enough to be pulled apart with a fork, the meat is plucked from the carcass and layered into a terrine crowned with a slab of skin that's roasted until the point of nearly shattering. It arrives with a touch of cabbage, beet greens, and a delicate mustard jus to help cut some of the rich fat. Insider tip: The restaurant is open for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch, but there's also a small counter-service café that operates daily from 8 a.m. to noon. Serving baked goods, hot breakfast sandwiches, smoothies, juices, and other tasty treats, the café is ideal for a quick alfresco bite on the patio, or simply order for delivery via Uber Eats if you live or work nearby.
