Mother's new hope

I know this is the NJ board, but as we spent the weekend in Lambertville, New Hope was just a walk over the bridge and we had lunch there. Thought I'd post my review.

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.
