PESCA by Michael’s

Chef and restauranteur, Michael Lugo, has announced his new venture, Pesca By Michael’s, a restaurant and rooftop bar slated to open in the third quarter of 2022 and located within The HYATT PLACE in Vilano Beach. Chef Lugo is well known in the area as the chef and owner of Michael’s, an upscale downtown St. Augustine restaurant focused on steaks and coastal Spanish-inspired cuisine.

“After 16 years of evolving Michael’s into one of St. Augustine’s benchmark destinations, I was searching for a new way to expand our brand and offerings,” Chef Lugo explained. “The opportunity to open a restaurant in The HYATT PLACE in Vilano seemed to be the perfect fit for this new venture. Vilano Beach is a quaint community minutes from downtown St. Augustine, where Michael’s is located. The proximity to our new venture, Pesca By Michael’s, brings new challenges on how to create something new without losing our connection to where we started.”

Pesca By Michael’s will combine bold Latin flavors with Florida’s coastal influence. It will also work toward a Fresh From Florida designation by sourcing local ingredients whenever possible. Comprised of an elegant dining room inspired by Miami’s Art Deco architecture along with a rooftop bar and grill offering live music and panoramic coastal views, Pesca By Michael’s will bring a new and exciting culinary concept to Northeast Florida’s growing cuisine scene. – More Information
