Sifton & the Classic French
Sam Sifton recently wrote a review of the La Grenouille that I felt compelled to share. He managed to evoke the romance and awe inspired by such old-school and traditional institutions as La Grenouille, classic and French since 1962.
I couldn’t help but remember the remarkably special dinners I used to have with my parents when we had a weekend in New York at La Caravelle, one of the long gone bastions of white-gloved French cuisine. Restaurants like La Grenouille deserve a unique and cherished spot in the dining scene not only for the reverant cuisine but also for the truly special dining experience they offer.
