Starting Nov. 3 and available for a limited time, the Michael’s On East culinary team will feature new three-course dinner and two-course lunch menus inspired by the Far East. Michael’s Indian Epicurean Adventure will be featured Nov. 3-30, 2014.
“We have balanced the traditional flavors of turmeric, cumin and curry with the freshest vegetables and specially-sourced meats for this special menu,” said Jamil Pineda, Michael’s On East Executive Chef. “Personally, I love the blend of aromatic spices in Indian cuisine—and know these dishes will delight guests with just the right level of spice.”
Michael’s Epicurean Adventures present culinary journeys to a new destination each month. The three-course Indian Epicurean Adventure dinner menu will be available Monday through Saturday evenings for $34.95 per person. The two-course Power Lunch offering features a choice of entrée and dessert for $18.95 per person and is available Monday through Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Each wine pairing is $10 during dinner or $5 per pairing during lunch.
