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 $12 per glass or $20 for the pairing. 

The three-course dinner menu is available Tuesday through Saturday evenings for $46.95 per person.

We dedicated this month’s Epicurean menu to Mexico honoring the country’s holiday, Cinco de Mayo, the Mexican cuisine, and the culture. Start in the heart of Mexico by indulging in the rich, smoky flavors of the Pork Tacos al Pastor with succulent slow-roasted Pork. Then travel back in time to pre-colonial Mexico with the signature dish of the state of Veracruz, Pescado a la Veracruzana, which blends fresh Snapper with the traditional zest of Peppers, Tomatoes & Green Olives. Treat yourself to the Mexican Hot Chocolate Tart that perfectly balances sweet & spicy and a perfect way to end any meal. Disfrutar!

Michael, Terri, and our GCCC guests have traveled far and wide, by plane, ship and train, to bring you the most authentic international cuisine possible. We hope you enjoy a taste of Mexico. You can join them in Tokyo, Japan 2024 aboard the brand new SilverSea Silver Nova 700 passenger cruise ship, and 2025 in South Africa, or both!
