Michael Schwartz to take over F&B operations at the Raleigh Hotel.
The Raleigh Hotel has confirmed that Michael Schwartz is on board to create a new restaurant concept for the iconic South Beach hotel.

In addition, Schwartz will oversee all food and beverage operations at the property.

The opening of the new restaurant will coincide with the relaunch of the Raleigh in December 2011, following a multi-million makeover of the 70-year-old art deco gem.

Schwartz, owner and chef of Michael's Genuine Food & Drink in Miami and Grand Cayman, is also set to open Harry's Pizzeria, a "casual pizza joint" in the Design District, sometime in the fall.

The Raleigh have a great chef already (John Deluci) but as always we dont know about it because he is not from Miami. Shame!!! Deluci is a far better chef that Michael is....

John DeLucie parted ways with the Raleigh long before Michael Schwartz was announced to come in, by the way.

How wonderful! One of the best chefs in the city. We spend a lot of time in SOBE so this will be a must stop!

It will be a great change, we will have a top of the line kitchen after the makeover, and having somebody like Chef Scwartz to guide us in the kitchen it will be a great pleasure to work with him, I cant wait, go Chef!!
