Lupie’s Café on NPR
Heard a promo on WFAE today that said Lupie's, the venerable greasy spoon on Monroe Road, would be featured this weekend on The Splendid Table . Specifically, the squash casserole from Lupie's. Which is odd, considering the place is known for burgers and chili. I've eaten there a number of times and didn't even know they had squash casserole.
If you've never been to Lupie's, you should go. If you've never listened to A Splendid Table (and you like food), you should check it out. Host Lynn Rosetta Casper is positivelly ebullient about all types of food–you can hear her smiling through the speakers–and she knows her stuff. I can promise you that whatever her correspondent has to say about the squash casserole at Lupie's, Casper will find it delightlful. She's just fun to listen to. The show airs Saturday at 4 p.m. on WFAE 90.7 FM.
