Tavern Tastemakers



WELCOME TO OUR CONVERSATION with Miami’s top tastemakers, in a setting that has always stirred a good chat, cultivated culture, and brought people together — even invited a little irreverance, without judgement of course. The Iconic Tavern. Join Ocean Drive Editor in Chief Jared Shapiro for a one on one interview series at Chef Michael Schwartz’s American Grill & Cocktail Bar to enjoy a taste of what drives those shaping our community — at go-time and on down time. New episodes air here every other Tuesday beginning March 1, each releasing new content online and in the restaurant inspired by our Tastemakers. You’re in good company.


EPISODE ONE: Setting the Schwartz Table
Jared sits down with Michael to talk staying power in the
competitive restaurant business and what’s new in the Design District.
