It’s about 4pm and I just got here and I am currently the happiest girl in the world with my matzoh ball soup (with carrots, please) and a cherry phosphate.
I always, always, always order a cherry phosphate at Canter’s because I love them so much but never actually knew what it was – so in the interests of science, I asked our friendly server today what makes a phosphate a phosphate, and it turns out it’s just seltzer water and syrup, but done old-fashioned soda fountain style instead of out of a machine. I think it’s less sweet than soda usually is, and super delicious.
The scene doesn’t seem too busy right now – lots of empty tables, lots of folks here alone catching a late lunch – but I’m sure there will be a rush as we get close to dinner time.
Be sure to come out and join the fun and pastrami and bring a donation for the food bank!
