You can find Strauss Veal at Whole Foods Market and Publix.

Apparently you didn't read the article...that's largely no longer the case.

Whole Foods Market has animal welfare standards for each of the types of meat it sells. If those practices aren't followed, they won't carry it and are very strict regarding inspection, with continual oversight. Strauss is also a very reputable company that has a mission to maintain those standards, and mirrors that of Whole Foods criteria.

So veal-lobster surf & turf made with foie gras?

I’m fine with pounded pork as the animal flesh. Veal would be a waste in a red sauce and melted cheese dish that overpowers the veal.

Back in the day, my college cafeteria served a breaded ground veal puck with mozzarella melted over it with red sauce. The colloquial name was elephant scabs. It wasn’t very good.

On the German thing, I went to a German place I’ve been going to forever but hadn’t been in a few years. They jacked up their prices. “Sauerbraten” was grilled tenderloin with a sauerbraten-like sweet & sour sauce. The spaetzle was kind of weird. I need to find another German place or start making my own.

I have been "protesting" veal since the '70s. I know little ole me didn't make a difference but I still had to stop eating it for my own peace of mind. Does anyone remember the ad for the cruelty those calves faced in that cage? It did a number on my young pysche.

Veal in general is on it's way out in the U.S. because most people aren't comfortable with the idea of eating animal babies.

Lamb seems to be doing just fine.

Veal parmigiana has historically been in the shadow of its more popular cousins eggplant parmigiana and chicken parmigiana.
I'm sure that the menu has been cleared of any items returning below a set margin. Seafood portofino is and has been conspicuously absent for the past few years.

I prefer the mild taste of veal. Chicken is just too ubiqutious, and I've never been an eggplant person.
