Like a welcome blast from the past, the juke box plays Franz Liszt, Billie Holliday, and John Coltrane; the rather large magazine rack is full of good reading material; and the dim interior sports black booths, dark red tile floors, and the original black marble counter. And the food hasn’t changed either. We savored every bite of the simple and delicious lentil soup; the cooked-medium burger on a pumpernickel bun with mustard, tomato, lettuce, and red onion; and a slice of cloudlike Godiva pie with a meringue crust and chocolate mousse filling. We love this no frills bar—long may its doors stay open.
