Whoops!  Big mistake!  I moved to Boston in 1988 not 1998!  You didn't miss much by not going to Anthony's or Jimmy's.  Food sucked.

Thought it's been too long since we talked on this forum. It's winter, big soup time. I was wondering. Does anyone here still make a soup as a starter course for a main meal?, as you still might have in a restaurant. My mom used to always make a soup as a starter in her early years especially for big holiday meals and get togethers,,often Italian wedding soup, (we always called meatball soup).....I miss that tradition as I often loved the soup course more than anything!

I'd give anything to have a big bowl of she crab soup from Cobb Lane in Birmingham. The old ladies who lunch spot had a multi-decade run before finally giving up the ghost. Best soup I've ever had in a restaurant.

My grandmother always started a meal with soup. Let me amend that. She always started a festive meal with soup. And it was always chicken soup with knaidel. (A round knaidel is what many call a matzo ball.)

We didn't have matzo balls until I was older because they were always called knaidelach at home.  I'm partial to home made sinkers but will never turn down a floater.

I as long grown before I learned that the knaidlach I grew up with was called knaidel by everyone else. And by the way, I prefer 'em heavy, but like you will eat them even if they're light enough to float.

For me soup has always been a next day thing, made from leftovers, rather than a special part of a meal served before, as an appetizer.

Sinkers......floaters........you goin fishing?  I had matzo ball soup only once and did not like it.  I liked the broth, not the matzo balls.
 
We never had soup as a first course.  When Nonna made pasta e fagiole that was dinner, as was wedding soup.  The other night I made broccoli cheddar soup.  That was dinner.  If I had soup first I'd be too full to eat anything else.

Same here.  If I make soup at home (whether fresh or from leftovers) it is the meal.
 
But if I'm at a restaurant I'll start off with soup just about every time.  And if there's more than one good soup available I have on occasion finished the meal with soup as well.

The BEST first coarse soup I have ever had was having Breakfast at Brennan's.  They make (or made) a creamed onion soup that was divine.  I had a choice of strawberries in cream or the cream onion soup.  There wasn't even a question!
