RIP Wingra's - Viva Cafe Dodici
So sad to see that the classic Wingra's had passed in half decade since I'd been in Washington IA. Also bummed that Dodici's Restaurant was closed Tuesdays. But the little cafe next door had a great Tuscan tomato soup, and the server was sweet enough to go next door to the restaurant kitchen after some balsamic vinegar (my own deal - the soup was made with San Marzano tomatoes and finely balanced with oregano and thyme). Also got a taste of a lamb soup that had been on offer earlier, which was also good. At 3.75 a bowl you can't go wrong! Very nice, warm wood interior, welcoming staff - worth a visit.
