Michael’s On East has been recognized in Florida Trend’s December 2014 issue and on FloridaTrend.com as a member of the Golden Spoon Hall of Fame, chosen amongst thousands of restaurants in Florida.
Florida Trend’s Golden Spoons are the oldest and most coveted dining awards in the state. The magazine started the awards 40 years ago as a guide to executives traveling around the state. Michael’s On East is the only Sarasota restaurant recognized as a “Hall of Fame” member in this year’s announcement.
“While we are tremendously proud to be recognized alongside a number of additional independent restaurants from our area again this year, I must say the Michael’s On East team is extremely privileged to be honored in the Golden Spoon Hall of Fame,” said Michael Klauber, co-proprietor of Michael’s On East.
Michael’s On East has enjoyed a long-standing Golden Spoon status, with 2014 marking the 23rd year the restaurant has been recognized as part of Florida Trend’s Golden Spoon Awards. Restaurants that have received Golden Spoon Awards year after year are considered for the Hall of Fame, the highest honor Florida Trend can bestow on a Florida restaurant.
