Mother's New Hope

Had lunch at Mother's in New Hope on Saturday. We've never eaten there before and decided to give it a try. It will be our last time.

There were four of us for lunch. The guys ordered the lobster bisque soup. I am not a fan of lobster bisque, but I guess it tasted okay. Problem was that it was lukewarm at best. Saturday was freezing so having lukewarm soup really didn't cut it. I had the french onion. The soup was a watery tasteless broth with about 6 undercooked onion pieces on it, topped with soggy bread and gloppy cheese. At least mine was hotter than the bisque.

For lunch I had a half a turkey sandwich, actually soup and a half. The turkey was real turkey breast meat and tasted fine. Came on marble rye that was toasted. Top piece of bread was hard as a rock, bottom piece soggy. Husband had the roasted pork, same problem with the bread. He said the pork tasted good.

Brother-in-law had the meatloaf, came on toasted bread with carmelized onions and melted cheese. I tasted it and it was quite good.

My sister decided to have the baked brie with raspberry sauce. Brie came out in a little tray and was all chopped up. It was topped with a gloppy, super sweet sauce that overpowered the brie in taste and quantity. It was pretty gross.

So parts of the meal were fair, the rest, not so good.
