During the month of May, Michael’s on East is bringing the vibrant flavors from south of the border to Sarasota!
Mexican food has some of the most well-known and beloved dishes in the world. Traditional Mexican cuisine is much more than authentic dishes and spices; it’s a vibrant, lovingly preserved, cultural heritage.
The history of Mexican food began about 9,000 years ago and many of the foods we find in the Mexican pantry carry ancient pedigrees. Beans, tomatoes, corn, and chile peppers rank among the world's first cultivated foods and were staples of ancient Aztecs and Mayans. In addition to the staples, native ingredients include tomatoes, squashes, avocados, cocoa, and vanilla. Similar to most other countries, traditional Mexican food varies regionally but blends to create the flavors what we know and love.
Our Mexican Epicurean menu is handcrafted to give our guests the experience of traditional meals with a Michael’s on East twist. Whether you are looking for something familiar or want to venture into the delicious unknown, this menu will give you a culinary experience you won’t forget.
The Michael’s On East three-course Mexican Epicurean Experience dinner menu is available Monday through Saturday evenings for $38.95 per person, May 1 - 30, 2019. The two-course lunch offering features a choice of entrée and dessert for $19.95 per person and is available Monday through Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
