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). While the restaurant has preserved its classic preparations of New York steak and grilled salmon, it has made some interesting additions to the menu. There’s classic Caesar salad for two (prepared tableside), rack of lamb for two (carved tableside) and other dishes you can surmise without ever looking at a menu, such as duck and crème brûlée. Still, the appetizers freshen things up with a spring roll and Hawaiian tuna tartare. Desserts ring similarly old-school --- not that that's a bad thing, done well --- with bananas Foster, cherries jubilee and 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 patio table.
