Le Cirque is widely considered one of the best restaurants in the world. The Manhattan-based French restaurant has been setting benchmarks in fine dining for over 50 years. Culinary giants like Daniel Boloud, Andrew Carmellini and David Bouley, to name a few, got their start in the kitchen of Le Cirque. Leiti Hsu is lucky enough to be joined by owner Sirio Maccioni and his middle son, Marco Maccioni. Sirio, now 82 years old, is set to recieve the 2014 James Beard Award for Lifetime Achievement. Tune in to this special episode of WORD OF MOUTH as Leiti chats with the Maccioni's about family, food and quality. This program was sponsored by Edwards VA Ham.
