Michael Schwartz to Open Veg-Forward Concept in Coconut Grove
By Laine Doss from Miami New Times
Michael Schwartz has announced a new concept opening in Coconut Grove. Tigertail + Mary is set to debut this May. Named for the corner on which it will stand, the restaurant will offer what is described in a press release as “fresh, vegetable-forward American cooking.”
Although the menu hasn’t been yet released to the public, it sounds like a recipe for what Schwartz does best: using local ingredients that speak for themselves.
The veg-forward menu will also offer dishes made with local seafood and meat from humanely raised animals. In a statement, the chef said Tigertail + Mary will take inspiration from the lush neighborhood in which it will reside. “For us, it’s about food that is unhindered in its sincerity to the ingredient and the way we want guests to feel welcome when they join us.”
The 120-seat restaurant will offer indoor seating, a bar, and a patio. Much like Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink, the eatery will boast an open kitchen as its focal point. The room, designed by Coconut Grove’s Arquitectonica and Meyer Davis Studio in New York City, will also offer a walk-up café selling breakfast bakery items and tables in the park for more casual fare.
