History & Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway came so frequently to Michel’s Christiania and Olympic Bar, he had his own table. Salmon with sorrel sauce, filet mignon with morels, lamb shank and fresh Idaho trout are just a few of the tantalizing entrées that keep locals and tourists coming back. Idaho potatoes and Michel’s authentic French recipe make “pommes frites” an unforgettable treat. Homemade dessert selections include crème brulee, fresh fruit sorbets, profiteroles and tarte tatin.
