Anton & Michel Restaurant Review

: Sure, the setting still stuns, original oils dot the dining room, the service staff shines, and a courtyard fountain view enchants just as it did twenty years ago (and counting). Just don’t anticipate any great epiphanies coming from the kitchen. Classic preparations of New York steak and grilled salmon are fine and dandy, but need to be taken to a next or new level. Cuisine is trapped in a time machine, its dial eternally on the 1960s. There’s classic Caesar salad for two (prepared tableside), rack of lamb for two (carved tableside, of course), and other dishes you can surmise without ever looking at a menu, such as duck and crème brûlée. Desserts ring similarly old-school, from the bananas Foster and cherries jubilee to the crêpes Suzette. The wine list wins, focusing most attention on Northern California and France’s Bordeaux region. For dog owners only: Waitstaff is pleased to escort your four-legged friend to a lovely patio table.
