TheDailyMeal: Fading Favorites: 11 Dishes Disappearing from Menus

7 of 12

5. Sole Véronique

This dish was invented by one of the greatest chefs who ever lived, Georges Auguste Escoffier, during a visit to London, and he named it in honor of the opening of a French opera there. Its name? "Véronique." It’s a fairly simple preparation of Dover sole poached in white wine and topped with a sauce of heavy cream, fresh herbs, and grapes. And while grapes and fish might not make for an obvious pairing, audiences around the globe went crazy for it, and it became a French restaurant mainstay. Today the dish has all but vanished, and only appears on one menu in New York, according to Menupages, albeit with scallops instead of sole, and with mushrooms added.
