Michael Smith is the Head Chef and owner of tapas restaurant, Extra Virgin and co-founder of his namesake, Michael Smith, (which sits next door to Extra Virgin in Kansas City, Missouri), and the award winning bistro, Forty Sardines in Leawood, Kansas which was nominated for a James Beard Award for “Best New Restaurant,” and won “Best Chef in the Midwest.” A first for him and for Kansas City. As an active member of the culinary community, Michael established a series of annual James Beard Foundation fund raising dinners, as well as developed local seminars and special events that featured celebrity chefs from all over the country. Michael and his recipes have been featured in numerous publications both locally and nationally including Gourmet, Bon Appétit, Wine Spectator and Robb Report. Michael continues to rank among the nation’s most recognized and respected chefs.
The creative partnership of Michael Smith and Eric Negrete has been nothing short of pure magic. Each of these brand identities are fresh and unique. And the interior designs created by design Eric Negrete are appropriate and distinct, as well as, create the perfect stage for Chef Michael Smith.
