Sometimes we are so interested in finding and trying new places that we forget to praise the old faithfuls. Just wanted to say that I had a great lunch at Bar Tabac. Their soup was perfectly wonderful on this cold day. It was cream of eggplant and cauliflower, which sounds like an odd combination but, trust me, it was delicious. Also, after I told the waiter that I'd better not order wine before returning to work, he insisted on giving me two little tastes for free. The Sancerre was just right, wish I could have drunk (drank?) a whole glass. Anyway, if anyone is looking for a weekday lunch place, don't forget Bar Tabac.
