My friend Margaret, noted bonne vivante, asked me to post this:
Zucco, the proprietor of one of my absolute favorite restaurants in New York (the aptly named Zucco le French Diner) died suddenly last Saturday, February 13th. Because this miniscule little gem (it could seat maybe 14 people) was as much about him as it was about the food, its future is uncertain. What is certain is that he - and his classic, unpretentious French bistro cooking - will be greatly missed.
