G – Grand Lux Cafe

a-to-z-letters-gIs there a dish you dream about? A dish that if you close your eyes and concentrate real hard, you can still taste, hours, day, weeks, months and years after having it? If I was forced to eat one meal for the rest of my life it would be the cream of chicken soup from the  Grand Lux Cafe.  It is that good.


She’s already here. I was hoping to beat her to the restaurant. Give me a chance to gather my thoughts.
Look at her, sitting there. She has no clue what’s about to happen. I’ve been told this is the best place to break up with a women.  The foods amazing and softens the blow.  
“Hey baby.” Jillian gets up and kisses me on the cheek.
“Hi Jill.” I have to break up with her. I can’t handle the pressure. I know she is waiting for a ring. I’m not ready for that.  
“How was your day?” she asks. 
“Great.” The waiter comes by to take our drink order. She orders a pomegranate margarita. I order a beer. That’s exactly what I’m talking about.  Why does she have to order a 9 dollar drink?  Why can’t she just order a beer?
“How was your day?” I ask because I can’t think of anything else to say. 
“Great.” The waiter comes back and takes our order. 
“I’ll just have the cream of chicken soup.” Jill says. Perfect. That’s the soup everyone says is better then sex.  I’ll let her finish her soup and then I’ll do it because I can’t spend another night with this woman.  
She tastes the soup and her eyes roll back into her head.
“Oh my god, this is so good.” She takes another bite and savors it.
Enjoy it women, it will be the last bowl of soup I buy for you. 
“You want a bite.” She asks and hands me her spoon. I take a bit. 
“That’s the best thing I’ve ever tasted.”
“It’s good isn’t it.” Jillian said. 
“Here, have the rest.” She pushed the bowl over to me. Ok, maybe she’s not that bad. It’s not like she’s even mentioned marriage. She really is a beautiful women. And, this soup is good.  
“Yeah, babe.” as I put another spoonful in my life. 
“I don’t think this is going to work.” 


What do you think is the perfect break up meal?

  1. Great stuff! I enjoyed the way it flowed. As for a break up meal … Humble pie perhaps. Good luck with the next three weeks of A to Z

  2. That was awesome! Didn’t even see it coming. Perfect break up meal? Is there one? It’s been so long since I’ve had a break up that I don’t want to think about it. Let’s just go with your story, it’s perfect. 🙂
