Of course we had to have dessert, even though we were so full that we could barely breathe at that point. Since everything we'd had was so rich, we decided on something light, hence, the Old Fashioned Root Beer Float, another house specialty. While the root beer float itself tasted like a normal root beer float, the chocolate chip cookies that came with it were warm and chewy — yum!
Needless to say, this was a very expensive meal, in the high three digits. I'm glad I didn't pay for it! But it was so worth every penny, not just because of the quality, but because you get a whole lot for what you pay, in quality and in portions. It's rare for a restaurant to excel in all three courses of the meal; usually they have one weakness. In the case of Michael Mina however, all three courses were delicious. And in terms of the portion sizes, you don't feel cheated when you dine at this establishment. I've been in so many nice restaurants where I feel that the amount of food you get doesn't justify the price. In this case, you will walk out stuffed to the gills. In fact, next time we go to Michael Mina, we've decided to forgo the appetizers and split a lobster pot pie between two people. The foie gras we're definitely getting again!
Michael Mina is open seven days a week, 5:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. For reservations, call 877-234-6358.
