Kitchen Overlooking The Dining Area

Michel melds a relaxed atmosphere with a chic sophistication captured in the clean lines of the details. Michel can be described as a compilation of the elements that define a restaurant. Reflective silver found in cutlery is translated into the sleek chrome lines that draw in guests. A well-seasoned chopping block translates into grayed wood paneling that wraps the restaurant in comforting and inviting warmth. Most notably, the deep burgundy hues of a rich red wine infuse the space with color, establishing a fun yet intimate feel.

Dish Art at The Entrance to The Restaurant

In addition to the subtle cues, the space is filled with literal creations such as the dish sculpture that has become a signature of Michel Richard restaurants. This is playfully pronounced again in the 30 plus foot light fixture that mimics plates transcending above the main dining space. It is these whimsical interpretations of all things culinary that define Michel as both an engaging and welcoming place to dine.
