MICHAEL J'S RESTAURANT
This new Italian-American Restaurant is located in the old Rickshaw/Landlocked Building on Mechem between IGA and Casa Blanca on the west side of the street. It's a dream come true for Michael John Wade, a New York native who moved here eight years ago having lived in CA, the Florida Keys and places in between during his long career as a restaurateur. He's worked in restaurants since high school, first as a dishwasher, then moved up to server/manager/captain status along the way. He owned a Cajun Restaurant in Northern CA 20 years ago briefly, but this is his first ownership in that many years. He's dedicated to preparing delicious and nutritious dinners served by attentive and efficient staff. His Chef is Brian Flowers previously of Willmon's Steak House. He and his kitchen crew produce a high-quality menu. The restaurant features home-made lasagna, eggplant parmesan, ravioli and many other mouth-watering pasta dishes. They also serve a great rib-eye steak, tenderloin of beef, veal, chicken and seafood dishes. Appetizers include bacon-wrapped crab-stuffed shrimp, Insalata Caprese, Smoked Salmon drizzled with a balsamic reduction with capers and extra-virgin olive oil, Bruschetta and more.
Enjoy outdoor and patio dining as well as out in our casually elegant dining room. Oh, and the service really is superb. As we say, We LOVE to PAMPER YOU!
