GETTING GENUINE WITH MICHAEL SCHWARTZ

FAMOUS CHEF AND RESTAURANT CONNOISSEUR, MICHAEL SCHWARTZ, SHARES HIS CAREER SUCCESS AND LOVE FOR FOOD.

Beaches of Miami Lifestyle | October 2021


WHEN DID YOUR LOVE FOR FOOD BEGIN? It was super early on when I was in high school. I got job at a fancy northern Italian restaurant as a busboy. The restaurant experience definitely got me hooked pretty quick early on, and by 16 I moved into the kitchen and started prepping, learning, and cooking. It was instant for me; I had found what I was really meant to do at an early age, and it stuck. PHILADELPHIA-BORN OWNER OF THE GENUINE HOSPITALITY GROUP, JAMES BEARD AWARD WINNING CHEF, AND COOK-

Any Miami local has without a doubt dined at one of the chef’s restaurants or indulged in one of his amazing dishes. With helming chef titles at some of the city’s most popular restaurants and even opening a laundry list of his own, it goes without saying that Michael Schwartz has successfully dominated Miami’s vibrant culinary scene. Under his hospitality group, The Genuine Hospitality Group, Schwartz runs his flagship location Michael’s Genuine in the Design District, three Harry’s Pizzeria locations, Tigertail + Mary in Coconut Grove, and Amara at Paraiso. However, this renown chef’s success is to be totally attributed to his true passion and love for curating good food and genuine hospitality. Schwartz’s approach

towards hospitality and concept for delicious food, sets him aside from the masses and others in the industry. Which is why it comes to no surprise that he has neighborhood staples all around the city. His focus on the integrity of his ingredients, sourcing local and seasonal foods, while also assuring his approach to hospitality is comfortable yet sophisticated, has indefinitely secured him a seat at the table of any culinary conversation. From cookbooks, to awards, to new restaurants, Schwartz shares how he earned his culinary chops in the kitchen, his recent opening of Miami Beach’s new Harry’s Pizzeria, and the renovation of Michael’s Genuine, re-opening in November.

“Slovenia borders Italy and Croatia, which is to say there are

a lot of shared values in and around food; they have really great cheese, dairy, beef, pasta, but very few tourists, hardly any. So if you love Italy, that kind of specific travel and food experience, particularly Northern Italy, because you can see the Alps from where they are. It’s picture perfect, a beautiful place, and also where orange wine is from.” Dennis also highly recommends Costa Rica, Hawaii and Finland. “Most people love the idea of travel, but we tend to pick the same places when we travel, and there is nothing wrong with that, they are amazing for a reason, but when you get off the beaten path a little bit, you learn the difference between vacation and travel.” 30
