The selection is small, but fresh—tuna, salmon and unagi, with California and tuna rolls.
From 2010: The gold standard in Kent for many years, Michele’s continues to tweak its menu and approach to keep longtime customers happy while drawing new ones. Michele’s has returned to basics this year, which means steak and seafood once again rule, but sushi shares the spotlight. (Chef John Boggs and Co. are working to make the rolls sparkle.) Girls’ Night Out on Thursdays is as popular as ever, with its half-price entrées for ladies. Surf and turf and New York strip are biggies, and the organic chicken and crab is a tasty twist on two local delicacies. Michele’s wine list offers something for everyone.
From 2009: When Ciro Poppiti wants to enjoy a nice evening with his wife, Laura, he’ll whisk her off to Michele’s Steak and Seafood at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino. “There’s just something about its high-roller ambiance,” he says. “You want great steak? It has it. You want great sushi? It has it. And Michele’s offers wines that are not available at your average restaurant.”
