I’ve been posting blogs for our bi-weekly soup menu for about 8 months. For the first time & to my absolute surprise, I received a friendly comment from a patron, Elham. Elham shared about how much she enjoyed our Yellow Corn Soup (the “most exquisite soup” she had ever eaten) & how sad she was to find it missing from our current soup menu.  She wrote, “I am not crazy but I have tears in my eyes thinking I won’t have that again.”

I know it’s just food, but I was really touched.

Similar experience –
Last summer I had the most fabulous flavor bursting appetizer at Table 8 – heirloom tomatoes/fresh herbs/burrata cheese. It was so wonderful, I can’t even remember my entrée from that evening. The appetizer was all that mattered. When a friend mentioned having dinner there some months later, my eyes widened & I began to dream – “heirloom tomatoes, burrata cheese, heaven”. It was the first time that my friend was going to experience Table 8, my most favorite appetizer, etc. I was so excited! We sat down, menus placed in hand & without a flinch, I was tearing through the appetizer section with my eyeballs. Where was that delicious dish? I swear I had to read through that section about three times. “Did I miss it the first two times? Is there a “Specials” menu? Where is it!?!” When I inquired about the appetizer, my server explained that heirloom tomatoes were seasonal, blah blah blah. I stopped listening. I just wanted that appetizer.

Summary –
Elham, I totally GET your excitment for Yellow Corn Soup. I do & I bet there are millions of other people who could share a similar story. Your comment to my soup menu blog really made a difference & we are going to bring that Yellow Corn Soup back into the rotation this summer for you and other interested folk to enjoy! SO, This is what you get from a little tidbit of SHARING. Thank you, Elham! (and if anyone has information about that Table 8 “heirloom tomato/burrata appetizer” tasty delite, please do share)

  1. Michelle, your post about the heirloom tomatos brought me right back to my dinner last night at Maximillian’s, a French restaurant in NoHo.  The special salad was a variety of heirloom tomatos in a delicious vinaigrette on a bed of frise and baby greens.  It was fabulous.

    Thanks for sharing your experience with us.

  6. Vegetables are a second type of plant matter that is commonly eaten as food. These include root vegetables such as potatoes and carrots, leaf vegetables such as spinach and lettuce, stem vegetables such as bamboo shoots and asparagus, and inflorescence vegetables such as globe artichokes and broccoli. Many herbs and spices are highly flavorsome vegetables.
