Yet another wonderful experience at Marcel's

My friend and I had dinner only an hour and a half before a National Symphony concert last night and the experience was great! They got us our food efficiently and quickly without us feeling rushed and the hostess was so concerned that we get there on time that she went into the ladies room to see why I was taking so long. We took advantage of their free limo service to the Kennedy Center which is highly recommended (expert, fast driving in rush hour traffic though scenes from the movie "Chinatown" did go through my mind as we were headed toward the Center). Also recommended is the pre-theater menu - two choices of a three course menu for $48 and the soup we started with in particular was a fabulous, interesting, not too thick(!) butternut squash soup with curry and chopped wild mushrooms in it. Such a mixture of great flavors. Orgasmic...
