Had some decent Gazpacho last night at Daily Grill. Wondering if anyone has can recommend other places that serve it.
Less chunky than gazpacho but absolutely fabulous is Lunaria's cold tomato soup -- one of the best in town.
For take-out I sometimes get Gelson's (Century City) gazpacho from the deli. It's not a 10 (maybe an 8 or a 9) but I enjoy it, and it's just $5/lb and convenient to buy while shopping.
I have even had Andalusian gazpacho (which is pureed, not chunky) and still LOVE the gazpacho at the Vienna Cafe on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood. I have been going there for 10 years and have converted many gazpacho-wary friends into aficionados. The price of a big bowl is about $4, or have it paired with one of their great salads (my fav-the Napa) for about $8. This place is a little cafe with a breakfast menu served all day with salads, sandwiches, and fresh pastries in the noontime hour. I would be remiss not to mention the patio tables with great potential for people watching in the heart of Melrose...
