  1. Don't see an article but there was this post from one of its fans saying that Michael Blum was no longer running the restaurant but was in charge of food and catering for the hotel.

    There have recently been a number of articles about the city of Hollywood coming after the restaurant for $100K+ in inducements paid by the city when he opened up in Hollywood (and closed down after 2 years last year), e.g. ->

          Query - If Michael Blum is no longer in charge of the kitchen at "Michael's Kitchen", who is? (did they find another Michael? Maybe Michael Bloise, who just left Wish?)

            The restaurant will remain open, operating under the name 'Kitchen 305,' with Kelly Sheehan at the helm.

      1. Just heard Kitchen 305 has opened in old Michael's Kitchen's spot. Anyone heard anything about it?

          apparently the menu copies many things from Michael's Kitchen. such as the spicy tuna martini.

            At Sunny Isles Beach's retro Newport Beach Resort, chef Michael Blum has left the building---along with his brief-lived restaurant Michael's Kitchen... or, at least, with the eatery's name. Re-named Kitchen 305, the space immediately re-opened under the direction of new executive chef Kelly Sheehan, former chef de cuisine at brief-lived Johnny V South Beach.
