Special Menus Inspired by Gauguin: Voyage to Paradise at Selby Gardens

gauguin 840x334

As the exclusive culinary partner of Selby Gardens, the Michael's team is thrilled with this season's new Paul Gauguin-focused exhibition highlighting the essential role of botanicals in achieving the artist’s vision of the exotic.

Together with lush displays of tropical plants in the conservatory and gardens, Gauguin: Voyage to Paradise features ten of the artist’s original dramatic woodcut prints and wood engravings, photographs showcasing Tahiti during the time of his travels, historic maps as well as visual materials that shaped his work. The special exhibition is scheduled for February 10 - June 30, 2019, and you can be sure the program has inspired new tropical dishes at the Selby House Cafe by Michael's On East! 

Enjoy new recipes inspired by the South Pacific for a limited time at the historic Selby House Cafe as well as our gourmet food truck also located on-premise in front of the Payne Mansion at the Gardens. Both dining experiences are open exclusively for members and visitors of  Selby Gardens

While Michael's On East typically offers a traditional French Epicurean Adventure each February, this year Chef Jamil and his team decided to seek inspiration from Selby Gardens' Gauguin exhibition, creating French Polynesian-themed $19.95 two-course lunch and $38.95 three-course dinner menus available at the fine dining restaurant located just a few minutes from Selby Gardens.
