      I wouldn't have known about it were it not for this post, but we went to Mica for the Lobster Tasting Menu and it was really good. I am a big fan of lobster; hubby could take it or leave it so he had something else. Presentations were really nice, all the ingredients were described, and I really enjoyed everything. The 4 course menu is listed on the website and costs $45. While none of the courses were huge, I thought the amount served was appropriate. I liked the second course - which included lobster in a silken type pasta the most. They have it for another 3 days. If you like lobster, you will definitely like this.

        We went to the first obster tasting dinner tey did a few weeks ago, and the food as absolutely heavenly. The portions were perfect for our appetites, which are not small! Yo won't be disappointed.

        The only quibble I had with them was the lack of documentation on the wine pairing, which we also purchased. The wines were fabulous, and definitely some sips I would not have chosen myself, but they weren't listed anywhere, so I had no idea what was coming. At the end of the meal to ask our server to write down the wines we tasted so I could purchase afew of them later. This didn't hamper my pleasure in a wonderful meal well excuted, but a restaurant of this caliber should demonstrate a little more sophistication and have that information readily available, especially on for specialty pairing for a specialty meal.

            Seriously? We just dined there this weekend and it was packed. Wow, that is going to be so sad if it is true.

              Not sure where you heard this information, but after just seeing this, I called them and they are definitely still open. There was a nice crowd when we were there for the Lobster Tasting two weeks ago.

                  Here's the confusion. According to Foobooz, Miga is closed. Mica is open.
