Seeking some GOOD soup for a cold day...

I am craving some really good soup, preferably a crab or lobster bisque.

Ideally, I'd like a place between the Village and 40th street....but I can be swayed to
go elsewhere for some very special soup.

Thanks in advance.

  1. I really like the soups at Bread (20 Spring St Btwn Elizabeth & Mott St) - they have a great tomato soup and daily rotating soup specials (I've never had a bad soup experience there). I generally go for the $10 half sandwich + soup lunch combo.

      I second the tomato soup at Bread rec. It's consistently outstanding.

    2. I went to Hale & Hearty soup, because they had a crab asparagus bisque on the menu.
      I LOVE crab and asparagus, so I gave it a go.

      It was ok. About a 5 on a 1-10 scale.

      Has anyone tried their best selling soup...the tomato cheddar?
      The girl told me it always sells out by 1pm.

        Excellent but heavy.

        Their everyday white bean is very good. So is anyting with lentils or black beans.

      2. if you are in soho/nolita - go to Rice and get their Mexican Chicken Soup. Delicious!

        1. One of my favorite soups is the chicken soup at Angon on 6th St. in the East Village.

          1. B&H on 2nd Avenue off St. Mark's-all their soups are delicious and warming--
