The James Beard Foundation has announced the restaurants being given the America's Classics Award this year, which honors "our nation's beloved regional restaurants." And one of the awards is going to notorious old timer and Who Goes There vet Le Veau d'Or. Saveur's James Oseland writes:
The diminutive French bistro Le Veau d’Or in Midtown is a time capsule. There’s the classic French fare, straight out of Escoffier; the formal but clubby décor, all beveled glass and polished mahogany; and the amiable owner, Monsieur Tréboux, who chats up the regulars, pours drinks behind the bar, and ferries dishes from the kitchen.The restaurant is 74 years-old and was once a celeb haunt. It still serves the classics like coq au vin, cassoulet, boeuf à la bourguignonne, and trout meunière.
