New Vegetarian Options at Michael's On East

New Vegetarian Options at Michael's On East
Vegans & Vegetarians: Put down the boring “side salad” and walk away slowly...

Most vegetarians and vegans have a hard time eating out, especially when it comes to fine dining. At Michael’s On East, we strive to provide service with the guest’s experience in mind. We believe that fine-dining should be accessible and inclusive for all lifestyles. We’re constantly looking for ways to bring more flavor, innovation, and creativity to the Michael’s On East dining experience – and guest feedback comes first when we evolve our menus and develop new dishes. After listening to our guests, we have recognized the need for additional veggie-friendly items. 

We are proud to announce NEW vegetarian and vegan menu options are NOW available during lunch and dinner!

“My goal for this menu was to create dishes that you won’t be able to try anywhere else. Vegetarian and vegan foods don’t have to be boring. I wanted to make sure each of the new menu items offers the same level of excellence our guests know and love. It’s the uniqueness that makes this menu special.” - Michael’s On East Executive Chef, Jamil Pineda 

From comfort-foods to exciting new dishes for the adventurous foodie, everyone will find something to delight their tastebuds.
