      Warm feeling on a cold night
      Windy, cold and snow in the forecast (Is this April?). We needed a place to warm up...and found a cozy respite inside the Cafe Coquette. Although chef Sanford d'Amato no longer owns the cafe, the combination of an interesting menu and good food continues. My son-in-law Fabio (that's really his name) chose the $25 special menu. He liked the veal meat loaf, but didn't care for the bean soup. After warming up with a glass of Malbec, beautiful daughter Andrea warmed up some more with the French onion soup...yes, lots of melted cheese on top! Andrea and I, both watching our girlish figures, went for soup and salad. She was ecstatic with the beet salad; I was equally pleased with the Salad Nicoise. Neither of us dieters ordered dessert. Instead, we ate Fabio's latte mousse. It was sinfully good. The tab...pretty reasonable. Waiter...definitely gay!
