There are many sayings at Mad Michaels. One is “Doing all the wrong things for the right reasons”. Instead of reaching for a jug of mayonnaise, the staff make their own and several kinds. Instead of wood pellets for the smoker, they chop the wood from several cords of Red Oak delivered throughout the season.
Produce has been sourced locally before it became fashionable to do so by the public. Many times Michael goes into the farmer’s fields to harvest Asparagus, Rhubarb and Pumpkins etc. Seasonal means Seasonal. When Asparagus is finished, it is off the menu for the year.
Meats are either organic (like Belanger’s Whole Lamb) or drug and hormone free.
Vegetarians are pleased by the wide choice of dishes that are not offered elsewhere.
