2013_michaels.jpgOld school LA restaurateur Michael McCarty of Michael's isn't looking to open another restaurant, although within the past few months he did revamp both his LA and NY eateries. In an interview with Zagat, McCarty discusses changes at his 34-year-old Santa Monica stalwart: " We are no longer an LA restaurant, we are a Santa Monica restaurant. And so therefore we adapted - we got rid of tablecloths, we got rid of bread, flowers on the table ... I tell this to my managers: it's like being a sailor you have to know how to sail in a gale, and you can sail in a dead calm and everything in between. And you can, I'm a sailor." [Zagat]
