Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink
Chef/owner Michael Schwartz is a star of the city’s Design District. His homey bistro strips pretension from the menu, and the food―locally sourced―comes first. Try dishes that range from succulent pork belly in a sweet-and-spicy broth, garnished with kimchi and crushed peanuts, to smoky wood-fired pizzas topped with roasted tomatoes and aged Gruyère. Insider tip:
