NEW YORK: Matzoh Ball Soup

Chicken soup is known as Jewish penicillin for its curative powers; add a matzoh ball or two, and you have a wonder drug. Just sniffing the rich yellow broth of Café Edison's version is guaranteed to make anyone feel hale and hearty. The big soft spheres of matzoh fall apart when you go at them with a spoon, making little dumplings in the soup below. Known to its fans as the Polish Tea Room, Café Edison is a bastion of such other old-world pleasures as beet borscht and cheese blintzes. It is located in what was once the grand ballroom of the Edison Hotel (now somewhat faded)—a rich taste of neighborhood New York before Times Square was Disneyfied.
