A Culinary Institute of America graduate and former Walt Disney World executive chef, Michael Minden knows how to get creative with his food. He and his wife, Carol, a former resort food and beverage director, opened Michael V's in January of 2006 to put their own twist on traditional American cuisine. Often drawing from French and Italian influences, Michael adds his own flourishes to classic dishes such as veal cordon bleu, steak diane, filet mignon with béarnaise sauce, and beef wellington. His signature Oscars dish may be worthy of an award show that lets guests choose a meat or fish protein before the chef honors it with a top of crab meat, béarnaise sauce, and asparagus. He also tosses pastas with savories such as chicken and shrimp, and he stacks half-pound Angus burgers with toppings such as gorgonzola cheese and chicken-fried bacon.
Meals can pair with fine wines and mixed cocktails from the restaurant's fiber-optic bar. Michael and his staff also bake all of their desserts from scratch daily--including the lauded Snickers brownie pie--giving the meal a finale sweeter than a choir of cherubs singing the contents of the check. The team also has earned accolades from Oklahoma magazine, which recognized Michael V's as serving up one of the city's finest coconut cream and chocolate pecan pies.
