Launch Event Miami Beach What’s New?

Michael Schwartz Restaurant Opening at the Raleigh

Michael Schwartz Restaurant Opening at the RaleighMonday, April 22 – Restaurant Michael Schwartz, 1775 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach

Restaurant Michael Schwartz is part of the remake of Collins Avenue’s Raleigh hotel, which was purchased by the unlikely combo of David Edelstein and Sam Nazarian in December. At the Raleigh, the James Beard Award-winning Schwartz, who already presides over Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink, Harry’s Pizzeria and the recently opened Cypress Room in the Design District, will continue his focus on local, seasonal ingredients and small and large plates meant for sharing.

Dishes will include signature Schwartz “snacks” like crispy hominy with chili and lime, plus house-made linguine with cured swordfish, fried Buffalo-style rabbit, clams casino and a large-format Harvey Cedars fish stew. As part of a changing menu that will be printed daily, Schwartz will offer raw-bar selections and try out new dishes, including a steak tartare with crispy shallots and a quail-egg yolk. And Hedy Goldsmith, Schwartz’s longtime and rightfully revered pastry chef, will be on dessert duty.

Schwartz will serve breakfast and lunch, and also offer in-room and poolside dining along with boxed beach meals at the Raleigh. In addition, the chef is working with Nazarian’s SBE hospitality company on the reboot of the Raleigh’s Martini Bar.
