When a good restaurant goes bad!

saabsista | May 31, 2008 07:06 PM

I was an early fan of Michael's Genuine in Miami's Design District. I loved it. I came for dinner often and the next thing I knew I was stopping in for drinks and maybe a small bite at the bar before a show or a movie a couple of times a week.I sang the praises of the restaurant to anyone who would listen. Well what a difference a year makes. Maybe it is all the press hype, but the restaurant I fell in love with no longer exists. it is difficult to make reservations.Not so for the celebs with "special seating times." Advance reservations made with specific seating are seldom if ever honored. The wait staff used to understand the food and the preparation. No longer. Many seem to be barely able to explain the menu. And above all else, the quality of food has really suffered. The "yummy" is gone. Anyone else have the same opinion? Has time cut down this once fine restaurant? It will be interesting to see what happens now that the restaurant has some stiff competition on the block with the arrival of Pacific Time just a block away.
