Welcome to Michael's: Great Food, Great People, Great Party!

from Michael McCarty of Michael's in Santa Monica (and New York) "a distinctly bicoastal collection of 85 of his favorite dishes. Employing quality ingredients, McCarty uses relies on simple preparation and last-minute garnishing with fresh herbs. Classic examples of California cuisine include a simple goat cheese and beet salad artfully dressed in a white wine-Dijon vinaigrette and a dash of fresh chives, and dungeness crab served with a Meyer lemon butter. His east coast roots shine through in dishes like Baked Clams Casino and Soft Shell Steamers, as well as a trio of dishes featuring ramps sautéed with peas and morels, fiddlehead ferns and spring onions, and a assorted spring vegetables."
