I asked chefs to send me their spring menus (yes! It's really here! Until the sideways rain starts again. A-hem). Chef William Mueller of Babblin' Babs Bistro, a breakfast and lunch cafe in the Proctor District, just debuted a menu that incorporates the things we love about spring - fresh peas and light flavors like lemon, guava and arugula. Click to read his menu, which he and wife Shannon Mueller change whenever the mood strikes.
