You can have two types of experiences at Michel's Christiania, a fine dining French restaurant that makes some of the best shoestring pommes frites this side of the Atlantic. The first is to grab a spot at the bar (where tables are for walk-ins only) and gaze at photos of U.S. Olympic skiers the owner personally coached.
The second is to make a reservation for the dining room and enjoy your escargot and mussels next to a table that’s bringing home a filet mignon just for their poodle. The menu rarely changes, so you’ll always know where to get a great meal, a stiff drink, and a chance to sit at the table Hemingway called his own when he was a regular.
