The Michael’s On East culinary team is proud to participate in the ninth annual Savor Sarasota Restaurant Week coordinated by Visit Sarasota County. The Savor Sarasota celebration showcasing special-priced lunch and dinner menus at more than 55 participating restaurants returns June 1-14, 2014; however, Michael’s On East will extend its specialty Sarasota Epicurean Adventure lunch and dinner menus throughout the entire month of June.
“Having the distinct honor of working with an entire community of culinary stand-outs both through Sarasota-Manatee Originals and Visit Sarasota County partnerships, personally I’m thrilled to join many area restaurateurs in support of Savor Sarasota each year,” said Michael Klauber, co-proprietor of Michael’s On East. “For our team, Savor Sarasota is a great opportunity for both residents and visitors to enjoy the splendors of our contemporary fine dining experience with creative, coastally-inspired cuisine at a special value.”
