La Grenouille

31 of 32

What’s an opulent, defiantly out-of-step-with-the-times 50-year-old French classic like this doing on a list of places to eat now? Well, in addition to representing the last of a breed of New York restaurants like La Côte Basque and Le Pavillon—places that defined the midcentury, strictly Francophonic ideal of fine dining—La Grenouille just rocks in its own impeccable way. Put on a tie, order a plate of rognons de veau with mustard and Cognac, and celebrate this survivor with a round of soufflés for the table.
