A subtly flavored small plate of faintly house-cured salmon comes daintily dressed with orange sections, pearl-size salmon eggs, and lemony fennel slices shaved so thin you could read through them (although I'm not sure why you would want to do that). A more rustic small plate, panzanella salad, actually comes in a bowl, and pleases via softly ripe heirloom tomatoes, mellow balsamic vinegar, olive oil, fresh basil, and crunchy cubes of soudrdough — one of three breads, along with olive and cranberry, that comprise the predinner selection.Did I mentioned that I am currently obsessed with fennel? Nothing jazzes up a salad, fish, or anything like fennel. I gotta get over to the Design District. Maybe for a post-Green Flamingos bite this Saturday night?

Michael's Jazzing Up the District
Michael's Genuine Food and Drink gets a rave review in the New Times. I NEED to get over there and try it. The review got me so hungry.
