Le Veau d’Or — 129 East 60th Street

Cathy Trebaux is Le Veau d’Or. She is a one-woman show who runs the iconic French restaurant that her father, Robert Trebaux, turned into an Upper East Side institution when he purchased the already 50-year-old bistro in 1985. “We love Cathy, that’s why we come,” shared a customer who has been eating here regularly for decades. Speaking about her business, Cathy revealed that a restaurateur is a dying profession: eateries are now owned by businessmen, rather than the people who categorically know how to run a restaurant. In the age of restaurateurs, she says of this classic New York establishment, “the restaurant wasn’t really open unless you were in it.”
