It's all about

Michael Veres comes with years of experience in the culinary field. He has been in the kitchen since high school when he found he loved cooking while working at the Solarium, then went on be the Saucier Chef at The Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas after he graduated from the Culinary Federation Apprenticeship program. He then returned to Tucson and was the Executive Chef at Daniels restaurant and on to owning two successful restaurants in Tucson. He has won 4 Silver Spoon Awards and was invited to cook at the James Beard House in New York. Michael’s goal is to make the Coyote Grill a place that people will seek out for a wonderful experience – great food with a beautiful setting. He plans on holding wine dinners and tastings in the future as well as having special events to be paired specifically with scotch or cigars on the patio… who knows. Michael married his high school sweetheart and has been married for 33 years. His 2 grown daughters live out of state, and he lives with his wife and their two dogs – Heidi, a mixed Shepard and Tina, a Great Dane.

We are committed to your enjoyment of your dining experience. Come for the food, stay for the views.
