The choices of ingredients and menu construction by the chef are superb. The food, especially the soups, is tasty to say the least. Each of the menu items bring together a unique array of ingredients that surprisingly go well together. Definitely worth a try. 3 degrees is one of my favorite lunchtime destinations, especially in the summer with its supremely prime location alongthe river. The traffic from the adjacent bridge is actually quite soothing when sitting outdoors, as it is reminiscent of overlapping ocean waves. It is quite accidental white noise. The service has been excellent every time I have dined here. The servers, especially Charley who served me most recently provide spot on detailed descriptions of the menu items... and more importantly are able to help you decide on what to eat. Thumbs up to another fine Kimpton eatery.
