Anthony's in the Catalinas

You'll never confuse the cuisine at Anthony's with such midway fare as cotton candy and hot dogs. Crawl into a canon and shoot yourself way over to the other end of the culinary scale to find Anthony's menu. It's Continental, meaning a mixture of classic French and Italian (Chateaubriand, veal scallopine) with the occasional haute-Southwestern interloper, all featuring flavors magnificently balanced and offered alongside the most stupendous wine list in town. Now, a restaurant whose finest appetizer is shrimp wrapped in bacon and served with a cream sauce and vegetable salsa is not a place you'd want to subject your heart, arteries and cellulite to every day. But Anthony's is a superb special-occasion restaurant, one that motivates you to find something special to celebrate as often as possible.
