The Michael’s On East culinary team is proud to participate in the eighth annual Savor Sarasota Restaurant Week coordinated by Visit Sarasota County. The Savor Sarasota celebration spotlighting special-priced lunch and dinner menus at more than 37 participating restaurants returns June 1-14, 2013; however, Michael’s On East will feature specialty Sarasota Epicurean Adventure lunch and dinner menus throughout the entire month of June.
“With such a dynamic group of independent restaurants in our community, including Florida’s highest concentration of Zagat-rated restaurants, I know many residents and visitors look forward to Savor Sarasota each year,” said Michael Klauber, co-proprietor of Michael’s On East. “For me, this year’s menu development was very exciting as we crafted cocktails and created dishes inspired by our thriving community’s cultural highlights and the colorful history of our creative, coastal region.”
The three-course Sarasota Epicurean Adventure dinner menu is available Monday through Saturday evenings for $29 per person, June 1-30, 2013. The two-course Power Lunch offering features a choice of entrée and dessert for $15 per person and is available Monday through Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Each wine or specialty drink pairing is $10 during dinner or $5 per pairing during lunch.
