J Michaels Tuscan SteakHouse has created an atmosphere of elegance and fine dining in oyster bay, The restaurant proved to be a very pleasant surprise on rainy friday night in April. Upon entering the intimate, dining room we found a beautifully appointed venue with flowers, wooden beams, high ceilings, elegant chandelier. wall treatments. and bar area.
We were led to our table by GM Bill Coulter IV and Benny his culinary associate. Our meal began with a plate of sliced toasted tuscan bread with a coating of gorgonzola cheese which literally melted in our mouth. After studying the menu, and consulting with Bill and Benny we chose an assortment of appetizers, entrees, and side dishes.
We started with:
Chef New world lobster meatballs- large formed balls of lobster meat, and, breadcrumbs simmered in a San Marzano cherry tomato marinara sauce. Unusual and enjoyable.
Shrimp TT's -Large butterflied prawns, filled with creamy mozzarella, wrapped with hickory smoked bacon and lightly breaded and baked in a chardonnay wine butter sauce. absolutely delicious, beautifully served and presented.
We then chose our entrees:
-a large, sizzling and delicious t bone steak with a small assortment of delicious vegetables: baked potato, and creamed spinach. The steak arrived sizzling hot and delicious.
- An incredibly delicious portion of chilean sea bass oreganate, with pinnoli nuts, atop a mound of sauteed spinach. with burnt string beans and asparagus
We were now ready for dessert, and Bill brought over a plate with generous slices of New York Cheesecake, chocolate mousse cake and two mounds of freshly made whipped cream.. simply sensational! We finished our meal with an iced capuccino and tea.
Because of the limited seating, call for reservations. , The restaurant has outdoor dining as well when the weather is warm.
