Despite the fact that we'll miss the rock shrimp gnocchi at The Royal, we're actually pretty excited about Michael's Genuine coming to The Raleigh--anyone who frequents Miami Beach must be. If you haven't eaten at his Design District temple of farm-fresh ingredients and mouth-watering deliciousness, you're missing out.
As for The Dutch, we're sure its NY reputation will precede it, and make tables hard to score from the get-go. This is pretty exciting for the W, which hasn't had a big splash of news since it opened two years ago. Its pool deck is a perennial favorite of the Miami event scene, and WALL continues to draw big names and Page Six mentions, so it's only fitting that the hotel is adding a restaurant that can keep up.
While restos come and go in Miami at a dizzying pace, fans of The Dutch can rest assured: Chef Andrew Carmellini tells Short Order that he has a long lease at the W.
