The New York Times on Le Bec Fin

 

Alexander Lobrano of the New York Times writes about Le Bec Fin, rather succinctly summing up the dichotomy of a French room serving up a American locavore’s delights.

So the same distracting question recurs throughout a meal here: Does serious food in the United States really still need a French benediction? By proving that it doesn’t, the new Bec Fin rather curiously succeeds in spite of itself.
