Anywhere in LA. My favorite right now is the stuff at Mrs. Winston's, but I'd be thrilled if there was anything donwtown.

      I actually looove the patate e lentiche soup at Milano's on South Brand Ave in Glendale. Perfect for this time of the year

        damn near lived on lentil soup during my nonmeat phases. sunin on westwood near santa monica; govinda's on venice and watseka, coffee & co on la tijera near lax; excellent lentil and spinach soup at pizzicotto in brentwood as well. i like the plain lentil soup at clementine when they have it, topped with feta cheese.

          I went to Sunin yesterday based off of this post for my sick BF and it was pretty good! Thanks for the post!

          Nook bistro on Santa Monica and W. LA makes a special version, they add some sort of cheese. I always get it without the cheese though and it's a nice, light and tasty soup.

                Does the Ash-e-Joe at Attari Patough count as "lentil soup"? It's great, in any case.

                Magic Carpet's red lentil soup is also excellent, intense.

                BTW, *mollyomormon*, my wife agrees with you about Mrs. Winston's.

                    Rex's Cafe in San Pedro has a great one with bacon and a toasted bagel. FYI, as a special only, call ahead. Breakfast and lunch only.

                      Marouch! Not too far from downtown. Sort of.
