The most charming place I have ever eaten was the Inn On Brushy Creek in Austin when I lived there in the mid 80's. It was a small house converted into a dining room and kitchen that only served 12 tables at a time and they were only open on the weekends. It was BYOB and the family cat was always basking on the hearth of the fireplace but would occasionally patrol the room looking for attention. The proprietors were a charming elderly male couple who would visit you tableside to make sure dinner was perfect, which it always was. You never knew what was on the menu for the evening because they changed the menu every weekend but the meals were always world class. You would have your choice of the fish, chicken, or beef. But- they always served this soup as a first course. After months of pleading and an impromptu performance of "Stand By Your Man" to a stunned but enthusiastic dinner crowd, they gave me the recipe and a standing ovation. Delighted but humiliated, I asked what the name of the House Soup really was, and they said, "Two Old Queens Soup!" The dining room roared with laughter. That was the most enjoyable meal I ever had.
