Miguel's was rated as the best French restaurant in 2011 and 2012 by the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. My wife and I have dined at founder Miguel Garcia's elegant eatery for the last 10 years and we've always given it four stars out of four. During our most recent visit, Miguel's was celebrating its 35th year in business, from July 1-31. It felt like the Fourth of July and New Year's Eve rolled into one. Located at 6631 Midnight Pass Road in Siesta Key, in the Crescent Plaza south of Stickney Point Road, Miguel's offers the best of everything. We've rarely seen an empty table. That's understandable. Who would want to miss this kind of food? For starters, we sampled sauteed Tiger shrimp, scallops and a signature Caesar salad for two prepared tableside. For an entree, we passed up veal scaloppini and rack of lamb and Scottish salmon and lamb chops and roasted duck and Dover Sole for our standard order, Chateaubriand for Two, something you don't see on any other menus. Carved tableside, it is a center cut of beef tenderloin to your taste and served with vegetables and bearnaise sauce. Like eating with the Queen. You can get used to tableside preparation. So we ordered Banana Supreme for Two for dessert, bananas mashed and mixed, cooked with Brandy and Triple Sec and served with whipped cream on top of ice cream. You don't see that on any other menu, either. We always schedule Miguel's for our last night before leaving for home. At Miguel's it's always a special occasion.
