Stolichniy postscript: The mushroom soup

OK, so I thought I got a pretty good cross section of the menu when I visited this Russian and Ukrainian eatery in North Highlands. Then the phone rang and the emails poured in. I didn't try the mushroom soup. You have to try the mushroom soup.

The first call came at 5 a.m. Sunday. More followed. No one wanted to argue about my thoughts on the food or my description of the young people swigging vodka 'til their heads exploded. They just wanted folks to know about the mushroom soup.

So if you go to Stolichniy, try the mushroom soup. As that early morning caller exclaimed, "It's the best soup I've ever had."
