Killer Lentil Soup at Gardunos

Gardunos Ristorante Italiano
When it comes to legumes, Lentils are in the basement rank
Only redeeming feature is that there is no need to soak overnight
But when it comes to soup grab your spoon and take this to the bank
Versus a minestrone, these lentils will winning the taste buds fight
Go to a great restaurant with patio on 17th Street
Where fresh made not dried pasta you will only meet
Not like in Italy where the café lined streets may be narrow
But where one’s appetite needs a large barrow
Owned by a husband and wife not some impersonal Olive Garden chain
“Honey your lentil soup tops the charts” should be the refrain
Not just lentils in a bowl all by themselves
But mushrooms, carrots and treats from the wife’s shelves
Gardunos is more than a piece of Italy in only name
On a warm summer night, eat not and your taste buds will be crying “On you shame!”
