This dish of kings and presidents is still a favorite on the hotel’s Room Service menu. Legend credits Oscar Tschirky with creating Veal Oscar, which has become so well loved that it has been adapted to beef, chicken and even fish. For the classic Veal Oscar we prepare at the Waldorf Astoria, we use only the most succulent, tender veal from the world-famous ranches of Nebraska.

The wafer thin slices are lightly sautéed before being topped with freshly prepared crab cakes and jumbo asparagus. The result is a remarkable dish that perfectly pairs the briny goodness of fresh crab with Nebraskan veal so moist and tender that it melts in the mouth. Topped with perfectly steamed asparagus, which has a unique flavor that is bright and clean with earthy undertones, Veal Oscar is truly one of the world’s great delicacies.
