When ended our vacation in Carmel with dinner at Christopher's. What a lovely place. The restaurant is charming, the service friendly and attentive, and the food absolutely exquisite. The appetizers were delicious: a cream of mushroom soup with a hint of horseradish, baked oysters (not Rockefeller) with the right amount of cheese and spices. The shellfish medley over a bed of linguini was one of the best we ever had. Next time in Carmel, we'll start and end our visit with dinner at Christopher's!
