Soups in Manhattan

  • c

Hi all,

I still have not found a good replacement for Soup Kitchen International - I'm looking for a restaurant specializing in soups or just great soups at any restaurant in Manhattan. Any suggestions?

  1. Fleur de Sel's chef Cyril Renaud makes killer soups. His Parsnip Soup With White Truffle & Roasted Chestnut Ravioli is to die for! The rest of the French cuisine he serves is not too shabby either.

    As its name implies, the French bistro, La Bonne Soupe, has several tasty soups on the menu + lots of other dishes.

    1. Most of the soups at Edison Cafe are among the best. Certainly, the chicken matzah ball soup and the borscht rate highly. Hungarian Goulash soup and Cabbage soup are also very good.

      The chicken soup is worth making a special trip for, or at the least, walking up to 47th street when you're at 42nd street.

        1. Try the soft shell turtle soup at Jazzi Wok downtown.
