The Tampa Bay Area Restaurants

Michael's on East

Fodor's Review

Not only do the lounge and piano bar, with their extensive wines and vintage cocktails, lure the after-theater set, but inspired cuisine and superior service also entice. Inside its Midtown Plaza shopping center location, you'll find a decor similar to New York's better bistros of the 1930s and '40s, but there is plenty of veranda seating for enjoying Sarasota's balmy weather. The fare ranges from bow-tie pasta with grilled chicken and sun-dried tomatoes to porcini-rubbed

rack of lamb to roasted swordfish with red potatoes. The pecan-graham-crusted key lime tart served under a cloud of baked meringue is only one of the creative combinations for concluding your cuisine adventure.
