Good flavor; a little spice. Onions perhaps not cooked long enough and not exactly caramelized. But such a cool location! The food doesn't have to be so good. The start of a really fun day.

Since I made this soup, I shouldn't be the one to comment on it...but I will. I started it at 3 and we ate at 8, but could have eaten at 7 probably (Livia had soccer practice.) Still, four hours...totally worth it. I used the most fabulous Gruyère the cheese man at the new Wegmans (Calkins Rd.), formerly the Chili Paul cheese man, could dig up. Wegmans baguette for the toast rounds. I used the recipe from Cooks Illustrated, of course! (I think you have to have an account to see it.)

The poor waiter. When our soup arrived, my sister-in-law and I both complained that it didn't have enough cheese and hadn't been under the broiler long enough. He said, that's the way we do it here. We said, please, take it back, and put more cheese on it, and put it under the broiler. He did, and when it came back, it was close to perfect. Then, of course, Kieley wanted a cup. So we asked the waiter to bring us another crock prepared exactly the same way. He by this time had become very good-natured about the soup -- we were being nice! -- but still I was a little afraid he might have spit in it. (He denied having done so.)
