Neighborhood diner where the soup never fails, the eggs are fluffy and buttery, and the Jello is always red.
Every time I've eaten at the A & T (for "Abundant and Tasty") I've asked what the soups were, only to choose the chicken, and its never failed me. Its always slightly different—sometimes more cloudy, sometimes more golden, sometimes more briny, sometimes more oniony, sometimes with a little more fat floating on top. On a cold winter afternoon, divested of some of its abundant noodles and with a few squishy rolls and butter on the side, it is manna. The rest of the fare at this neighborhood place covers the classics, but with no real weak spots. Among the best bets are the all-day breakfasts-a gargantuan demilune omelet with feta, olives, and tomatoes; off-the-bone grilled ham with buttery scrambled eggs. Frankly, I've never had anything bad at the A & T. Just ask for your hash browns crispy.
