Michel's at the Colony Surf Restaurant Review

: Michel’s elegant dining room opens on one side directly to the beach, with the surf pounding the shore only 40 feet away. Dinner is reminiscent of a sunset beach picnic with linen, china and chandeliers. The kitchen is overseen by chef Hardy Kinscher. The menu has featured grilled Maine lobster pot stickers with a sweet-and-sour vinaigrette, Chinese-style steamed onaga, and a Kurobuta pork shank served with lobster risotto. You can still get classics like Caesar salad served tableside, steak tartare or escargots, but for a true taste of Kinscher's cooking, opt for the six-course tasting menu ($95 without wine pairing) that rotates seasonally. Under general manager and sommelier Philip Shaw, the wine list holds a collection of new-world Pinot Noirs. There are soufflés for dessert, including Grand Marnier.
