Think Soft Shell Crab Po Boy or Redfish Court-Bouillon for lunch, followed by French Market Beignets or a Warm Peach Cobbler with Bourbon Vanilla Ice Cream and Toasted Pecan Tuile for dessert. Or perhaps Bayou Louise Crawfish Beignets, Chef Paul Prudhomme's "Magic" Blackened Redfish or Bourbon-Glazed Short Ribs for dinner this week... That's right, if you are ready to visit Louisiana from the comfort of your favorite table in town, Michael's On East is ready to take you away. On an Epicurean Adventure to New Orleans this July, that is.
It was in New Orleans where Michael's On East Founder and Co-Proprietor Michael Klauber gained his original love for food with bold flavor. Michael spent four years in the French Quarter, working with the famed Royal Sonesta Hotel and Arnaud's Restaurant in the late 1970s. "I've certainly been reminiscing about my cooking – and eating – experiences in New Orleans as we planned this special menu," said Michael recently. "From Chef Paul-inspired Blackened Redfish and traditional French Beignets to bold, beautiful Cajun dishes with all the flair and fun of the Big Easy's best cuisine."

We have two Wine Dinners scheduled in July on Monday, July 21st and Monday, July 28th - both beginning at 6:00 and available at $46 per person (plus tax plus tip). We will be featuring the wines of the Sebastiani brothers (but not the Sebastiani label itself-the actual brothers who split after the label was sold). This is an extremely popular event--so don't delay in reserving your tickets. Space is limited and reservations and advance payment are required. Call Michelle at 941-484-1855 to reserve your seats or for additional information.
