Souperman in KC?

Has anyone been to Souperman in the Crossroads yet? it's located on Main Street, in the Crossroads, in the new parking garage for the Barkley offices (old TWA building)? is it even open?

  1. It just opened about two days ago, I'll wait for all the wannabes to flock there first. I wanna smell the food, not smell the newness.

    1. Well, I guess I must be a wannabe then (eye roll), because I can't wait... might try to get there this weekend. I'll report back if I do.

      1. Call before you go and make sure they're open -- I heard they were only going to be open M-F from 11 to 3.

          Restaurant Guide says M-F, 10-2... but I am off work tomorrow!

        2. Website here, w/ online ordering: I've heard they are going to have delivery in the future! (Please say they'll deliver to my office, please say they'll deliver to my office, please say they'll deliver to my office...) Their website says 10-3 too.

          1. This sounds like a fun new place and it reminds me of a place in KC that I loved when I was a kid. Does anyone remember The Souper in Westport? Menu was simple, but excellent. Just 3 or 4 soups, 3 or 4 fresh baked breads, and 3 or 4 yummy desserts to choose from - all written on a chalkboard. Everything was fresh made and seasonal -- or at least appeared to be, to my young foodie eyes.

              Hey catroo, where does your husband cook now?
              There are lots of KC & midwest expats in the PNW.
              Here's a local site to get focused on your
              move back to KC.

                Glad to see some other folks remember The Souper fondly...that link was a nice trip down memory lane.

                My husband works in the catering, personal chef business; he prefers more interaction with customers than you can get in the restaurant biz. He's worked some large private events and weddings at Portland's White House B&B - a beautiful place, BTW. He 's also taught some cooking classes.

                We're still trying to figure out how to make our mark in the food business in KC, but we know that it'll help to have family and friends close by for support.

                Thanks for asking and for the KC forum link - we've got lots to figure out regarding housing, schools, and so on.

                  I ate there and really enjoyed it. The broccolli cheese soup made with Boulevard Ale was delicious. It gets very busy though.
