Sometimes when you go on vacation and find a place you love when you revisit it is just not the same. Not true here. We were lucky enough to dine two nights at St. Mikes as the locals call it and one was better than the other if that is even possible. --we were staying at the Sheraton and could walk over to the restaurant so we did not have to worry about parking. The first night we had Rigels cheese plate and since he was our waiter it only seemed appropriate. It was excellent. Just enough to taste 3 wonderful cheeses, each with a different texture and flavor. Crackers were served with it but we preferred the wonderful bread. For entrees my husband choose the center cut niman ranch pork chop. It was large, and perfectly cooked. The braised purple cabbage was a wonderful side dish. I had the smoked chicken and pasta with spinach, asparagus and feta cheese. It was a special for the night and delicious. The third in our party choose the curried pappardelle pasta which had clams, rock shrimp, smoked chicken and a white wine light sauce. I never did get to try any because it was completely gone. Since we enjoyed ourselves so much we returned at the end of our CA visit. We ordered a caesar salad, and an organic baby greens salad to start. Both were fresh, crisp, cold and the green salad had a warm encrusted goat cheese on top. Perfect start to another great meal. My husband said his favorite meal of the vacation was the Duck Confit . He could not say enough about the meal. I opted for the Ranch NY Steak . Every bite was heaven. I love St. Michael's, the people who work there, the ambiance, it is as I have said before warm and inviting and continues to be one of my favorites.
