Alphabet Soup is to die for – I love this place!!!!!The food was impecable, the decor is soothing and very inviting. I had the shrimp and grits which melted in my mouth. Not being a "grit" fan, the combination of tomato and pesto was amazing. My husband had calamari which was breaded very lightly and mouth watering, the green goddess tartar sauce was TO DIE FOR!!!!! I have never had such succulent calamari. For dinner I had the Cod, which I have to say was the best I have EVER had. The combination of sweet corn and spinach and bits of bacon made me just want more, I almost licked my plate clean. My husband had the Flat iron steak which was cooked perfectly and oh so tender. They started doing these garlic chips which are made fresh to order, you can't stop eating them. Oh yea, I almost forgot. My 14 month old daughter loved the mac and cheese. I was so happy that they were so accomadating for my whole family. I would highly recomend Alphabet Soup. Not only for those ramantic nights out , but, also on a Tuesday night with the family. The owners were so friendly and couldn't do enough to make us happy. I see this place as a perfect family restaurant, not only was the food fantastic, the plate presentation was picture perfect. I would love to have a private party there. I can't wait to go back and try lunch and brunch.
Awesome Lobster Roll! Great Prices. – Recently went to Alphabet soup and had a fantastic lobster roll! I personally think it's better than the one at B&G Oysters in Boston. All enters are under $20, with the exception of the lobster roll, which is market price. My fiance?s cod was delicious as well. We shared the white wine and tomato mussels for our appetizer; however, there were no tomatoes in our dish. My only tiny complaint ? I wish they would provide bread while you wait for your appetizers and entrees. BUT, they did just reopen, so maybe they are getting back into the groove of things. Overall, a great dining experience! Highly recommended.
Thank Goodness Alphabet Soup is BACK!!! – I had several opportunities to visit the quaint little town of Audubon to dine at Alphabet Soup. Not knowing what to expect of the menu, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that besides wonderful soup, there was Lamb, salmon, bass, prime steak, scallops, risotto, foie gras, fresh baked cookies and so much more!!!! Apparently the restaurant could not survive in the sleepy but pretty little town and the owner decided to close for a bit, work on some other projects and retool the menu. Now it is opening very soon I hear from a friend and the menu will offer more less expensive options (although for a byob I never thought it was pricey). More items on the menu and less expensive in reaction to these trying times. Now a night out is even more affordable. I had the pleasure of planning a family event there and I look forward to the next time!!
