Chef Michael Lugo was married in St. Augustine in 2002 and fell in love with the city. It reminded him of Puerto Rico where he was born, and he knew this was the place to fulfill his childhood culinary dream. He and his wife moved to St. Augustine, planting their roots in the community, and in 2006 open the doors of Michael’s Tasting Room.
Michael’s is located on the scenic Calle Cuna in the heart of Historic Downtown St. Augustine. The building began as the Buchanti House that dates back to 1764 and was made famous by the Whitney Family of Marineland, who refurbished the historic home for the city’s 400th anniversary. The building later spent time as Wheeler’s Christmas store until Chef Michael and his wife Stephanie converted the structure into a restaurant in 2006.
