The culinary team at Michael’s On East is challenged to create new dishes inspired by the world’s most exotic destinations each month. Join us to experience ever-changing, palate-pleasing global cuisine with Michael's Epicurean Adventures. We invite you to enjoy special wine pairings for $10 per glass or $18 for the pairing. 

This month's Epicurean menu was inspired by the Annual Gulf Coast Connoisseur Club trip this past August. This adventurous expedition, led by Michael and Terri Klauber, took GCCC members to the finest restaurants and vineyards throughout Greece.

The three-course dinner menu is available Tuesday through Saturday evenings for $42.95 per person.

Available for dine-in or takeout!

Tasting Notes:  Medium-bodied, with waxy peach and golden pear notes, delicate white flower notes on the nose, and a savory, saline finish and mineral texture. This is a wonderful companion to foods like fried or baked fish, pasta in light cream sauce, or cheeses.

Tasting Notes:  Ripe raspberry and damson plum fruit commingle on the palate with hints of vanilla and nutmeg.
