When I was perhaps 11 years old and in my hometown of Ocean City, I’d go to the drugstore to buy a milkshake. Sometimes they’d give me the shaker and there would be an extra drop inside. Some restaurants do the same with a martini but not many. What I get when I come here is really a martini and a half. The owner, Catherine, knows that I like a little extra, just like when I had a milkshake as a boy. That’s why I come to Le Veau d’Or: because I get a good table and a great martini.
