French Onion Soup Mushroom and Kombu broth, Gruyere
Ever since Tom Sietsema, Washington Post food critic, wrote about Primrose’s French onion soup, I knew we had to try it. Thankfully it was what the doctor ordered on a cold March day in D.C.
The broth is not your usual. It was a very tasty mushroom kombu broth. It had plenty of gruyere but unfortunately a little too many pieces of French bread in the broth.

Croque Monsieur Black Forest ham, béchamel, Swiss cheese
It was very good but I felt the portion was a bit smaller than the last time we had it. The ham was of a very high quality and the Swiss impressed.
