Michael Schwartz to Open the Cypress Room March 27 (Photos)

Michael Schwartz is not a white-tablecloth kind of restaurateur. Michael's Genuine Food & Drink, his flagship place, uses placemats. Harry's Pizzeria, a neighborhood pizza shop, has bare tables.

But his fourth restaurant (his third is an outpost of Michael's Genuine in Grand Cayman) has many white tablecloths. It also has delicate china, a crystal chandelier, purple lilies in petite vases, and rose-hued wallpaper printed with flora and fauna.

And in this very elegant setting, entrées such as antelope -- alongside turnips, apricots, and mizuna -- will be proffered for $41. There will also be marrow bones and frogs' legs.

Dubbed the Cypress Room, his new Design District joint is located at 3620 NE Second Ave. and is set to debut March 27. An ode to 1920s fine dining, the Cypress Room is fancy, pricey, and awfully good-looking.
