Quiet Lunch Today: La Croix

It was perfect. Service gracious; view of park so nice; the kind of quiet I was seeking.

Prix Fix at $24 included wonderful mushroom soup; an excellent hamburger just the way I
like them cooked, with all sorts of good things on it; dessert tray with many small samples
of luscious stuff. Somewhat limited choices of entrees: my friend chose a salad with
a nice juicy 1/4 chicken breast atop; there was also a pasta choice that sounded interesting.

Comparing this with last week's lunch at the Palm: For atmosphere: La Croix 10; Palm 5
Quiet: La Croix 10 Palm 4. Value and choices of prix fix lunch: La Croix 8 Palm 10.
Dessert: La Croix 10 Palm 8.

Future lunch treats of friends, I would choose La Croix every time. The conversation is
as much a part of the luncheon experience as the food. Which was really excellent
at La Croix, albeit for less exciting choices than I might have prefered.

Transportaion problem got solved: hubby dropped us off; we took a cab back.
