No one goes to a museum restaurant expecting a great lunch. Generally, the food is so-so. OK if you are starving. But at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Leon Graham and I stopped in to the little cafe there on our way to a new exhibit, and I had a wonderful soup I had forgotten about: Thai chicken noodle.
The museum’s version was fabulous. Silky, lime-spiked, a little hot, a little salty with slivers of chicken and wonderful, glassy noodles.
