Today’s Sentinel Recipe: Yesterday’s Onion Soup

Rack's Yesterday's Onion Soup /photo by Mark Randall, Sun Sentinel

As a Fort Lauderdale native, I well remember the popular restaurants that have gone from the landscape, but not the palate memories of many locals and tourists alike. Yesterday’s (with the upstairs Plum Room, frequented by VIPS and celebs) was one of those restaurants.

In today’s Sun Sentinel column, I get the recipe for Gary Rack’s version of the well known onion soup served there long ago. It’s made by chef Matthew Danaher at Rack’s Downtown Eatery and Tavern, a new modern comfort-food haven in Boca’s Mizner Park.

    Interesting to see a recipe from the long-gone Yesterday’s on the Intracoastal. As a server and one of the original nine captains, I have lugged many trays of Onion Soup from the kitchen and down to the patio to serve the most savage group of Early Bird diners ever assembled in one room. I went from waiter, to captain, and then finally worked a few years upstairs in the famed Plum Room. My nine years spent working at Yesterday’s will be on eof the most entertaining sections of a book I will eventually finish writing about the hospitality business in So Flo. In the meantime, I am a successful food critic today. My Internet Magazine located at http://www.dinnerreviews.com is read all over South Florida, the USA and the world! Enjoy!
