Thanks in advance.
Hmmmm, I am a fish lover and Le Bernardin is a seafood restaurant. You may be on to something here.
Like you, however, I have long been befuddled with why entree means a main course in American English. Since I was born a Catholic (i.e. "mackerel snapper"), blaming the Huguenots has always seemed a good idea.
