Fixed Price French Menu at Sly’s

It started with the Kennedys – and Jacqueline Kennedy. A French Chef – in the White House, René Verdon. And it continued for years, especially after Julia Child came along and made us even more enamored with French food.  A fancy, special occasion restaurant in Manhattan, Boston, Philadelphia, San Franciso or Los Angeles in those years? Chances are, it was French. Your local, go-to neighborhood restaurant in those same cities? Probably a French bistro as well. Fine food was, well, French food. The 60’s, 70’s and 80’s were great years in America for “French” food.
