Miguel's restaurant has been doing business in a hard-to-find corner of a small shopping mall on Siesta Key in Sarasota, Florida, for 30 years. He must be doing something right because you'd think a place located in such an out-of-the-way place would go unnoticed and out of business if the food wasn't good. Well, the food is very, very good. Chef/owner Gabriel Garcia presents a French continental cuisine. After eating so much fish for four weeks, I decided to have a filet mignon, the only steak I've eaten during our entire vacation. It was excellent. My wife chose veal picatta for the third time in a week. Each night, she claimed the veal was better than the night before. Finally, she insisted Miguel's veal picatta was the best she has had. We topped off the evening by having bananas Foster prepared at our table. You usually don't see bananas Foster on a menu but we saw it three times within a week. Couldn't pass it up. Although neither version was caramelized, which we had the very first time we had the dessert and found it irresistible, each was excellent in its own right. Certainly not disappointing. Miguel's atmosphere is wonderful, too. It has to rank among the top five restaurants in the Sarasota area.
