RESTAURANT MICHAEL SCHWARTZ1775 Collins Ave Miami Beach FL 33139
In any given group of friends, there are those who want to eat where the stars eat, and there are those who talk up food like octogenarians at a Boca Raton country club buffet. Where to go to appease both the scenesters and the foodies in your flock? Restaurant Michael Schwartz at The Raleigh, that’s where. You and your pals will feel über A-listy in this resplendent resto, where deco dances with deelish. Sit indoors and bask in the swellegant lobby dining room, or point yourselves al fresco, where an enchanted space beneath shady trees awaits. When the modern American cuisine arrives, your food-loving friends will sing the praises of the chefs and the real stars: the local farmers and fishermen who work up these super-fresh ingredients. Meanwhile, your name-dropping friends will be busy picking their jaws up from off the floor after seeing LeBron James high-five James Franco as Calvin Klein looks on. And that’s just the first course. Just wait until you reach dessert by star pastry chef Hedy Goldsmith, the Scorsese of sweets. You’ll feel like a kid, albeit a very lucky and sophisticated kid, as you dig into Goldsmith’s tangerine Creamsicle pot de crème, served with three sugar-dusted doughnut holes. Stellar indeed.
