I'd like to take my Mom out for a nice dinner for her birthday, and lately she's been dying for vichyssoise. Does anyone know where in Toronto, or preferably, the West end, that I could take her?

    1. Vichyssoise is really a summer soup as it should be served chilled. I think it might prove difficult if not impossible to find any restaurant who would serve it at this time of year.

        That's what I figured, thanks anyways...

          Just an idea...

          Why don't you take your mom out for a nice dinner, and then surprise her with a big container of homemade vichyssoise. I don't know what your cooking skills are like, but vicyssoise is one of the simplest soups to make.

      2. It's nicest on a hot summer day, but when you get a hankering you just have to have it.

        I understand Le Trou Normand still serves it year 'round. Having not been since the 80's I couldn't really rec. Was good.
