Used to go to TFB years and years ago on S. Congress (refuse to use SoCo, we ain't New Yorkers) and would get the soup and half sandwich and delicious chocolate chip cookie. At one time they had a 5 Lilly Soup which was scrumptious.
I has been many years since I had been back to them but saw a Groupon deal and decided to give them a try again. I didn't even know that they served dinner now.
Went there last night with SWMBO, had a bowl of mussels and the cucumber soup. She had the fish. Although my food was good, I would not caracterize it as remarkable, special or anything else beyound just good. The mussels, PEI, were steamed to the correct point but the broth was rather flat, lacking in distinctive flavor. A little more seasoning and perhaps more wine would have been a big help. Although a good bowl of cold soup the soup was quite acidic and had too strong of a lemon flavor. I could have used less acid and perhaps more yogurt.
The wife's fish seemed to be cooked appropriately and she said it had a good flavor. She is interested in returning, I am very neutral. I too think things are overpriced by a couple of bucks in general. Service was very spotty but I asked our waitress if they were always this busy she noted that usually not and added that that fact had interferred with the service we received.
Now, they don't sell alcoholic beverages and many folks had brought their own wine. There is a 6 dollar corkage fee.
They do service breakfast and the breakfast menu looked interesting. We will probably go back for breakfast soon.
