Restaurant Michael announces new Cafe Favorites menu and Writers' Theatre partnership

Chef Michael Lachowicz’s North Shore standout, Restaurant Michael (64 Green Bay Rd., 847-441-3100) announces a new three-course “Café Favorites” menu, as well as a partnership with the Writers’ Theatre (376 Park Ave., Glencoe; 847-242-6000) for its 2009-2010 season.

Three-Course Café Favorites Menu
The new “Café Favorites” menu, which launched Tuesday, August 17, is a three-course café bistro style menu offering patrons a choice from three appetizer selections, three entrée selections and two dessert selections for $34 per person. For an additional $14, guests can add wine paired with the appetizer and entrée courses. The items available on the Café Favorites menu will change every Tuesday.

“The Café Favorites menu is prepared with the same classic French technique as Restaurant Michael’s regular menu,” says Lachowicz. “However, the dishes are more café bistro style, just as sophisticated, but with a less stuffy presentation.”

Sample dishes from the Café Favorites menu include Summer Corn and Tarragon Blinis with shaved fennel, sautéed shrimp and chervil salad; Exotic Mushroom Tart over baby mixed field greens dressed with Roquefort cream and toasted hazelnuts; Classic Steak Frîtes with baby French green beans; Roast Filet of Wild Alaskan Salmon “Marchand de Vin” with red chard and potato gratin; Baked Breast of Free Range Chicken “Dijon” with roast potatoes and carrots; and Peach Filled Crepes with cinnamon whipped cream and toasted chopped pecans.
