Christopher Holen

Baked Alaska Restaurant & Lounge - Astoria, OR

The exquisite bounty of the Pacific Northwest—think Columbia River salmon and Dungeness crab—is the focus at Christopher Holen's Baked Alaska Restaurant & Lounge, located on the beautiful Oregon coast, where James Beard himself spent his childhood. The wonderful wines of nearby Willamette Valley will be paired with this menu.
