Décor runs to French sensibility with collections of framed posters and magazines. One passage has a motley collection of mirrors, while each bathroom bears its own theme: "naughty" French postcards of the 1920s, Picasso posters, and menus and pages from an old cookbook. Colors are black, linen, maroon, brown, and gray. The background music is vocal jazz, the one aspect of American culture the French envy. In all, an air of West Cambridge bohemia remains.
A dinner at Craigie on Main isn't cheap, and it isn't filling, but it is memorable. And even at this time of year, memories will keep you even warmer than will calories.
