Lunch and dinner. Michael's used to be a downtown institution, and even though it's in a new building, it has a bit of that old-style feel, complete with live pianist renditions of old pop tunes. They serve lunch and dinner, with classic old-style cuts like prime rib, delmonico and steer butt, plus seafood entrees such as ancho-crusted tilabpia, citrus-grilled mahi mahi over grilled grit cakes, shrimp and grits, seafood risotto, and several other entrees plus burgers and sandwiches. Serving lunch and dinner. Not worth a special trip, but if you're in the area, worth a visit for the steer butt and grilled asparagus. Don't miss the sweet rolls.
