Le Veau d'Or Restaurant Review

: Some of the regulars --- and there are many at this old-school bistro, originally opened in 1937 --- consider it a living museum. Chef Marin Martin continues the restaurant's tradition of pure culinary nostalgia with Parisian cooking, from trout sautéed with butter to chicken livers in Madeira sauce, vichyssoise, and lamb stew with vegetables. If you like kidneys, tripe and sweetbreads, Le Veau d'Or is a good choice. Sauerkraut as an Alsatian specialty served with ham, sausage or lard is a treat. For dessert, there's chocolate mousse, caramel custard and pancakes with caramel sauce and ice cream. The French and American wines are reasonably priced.
