Copycat recipe for the Tomato Basil Soup at Cafeteria (in Chelsea)? [moved from Manhattan board]

I'm craving the tomato basil soup at Cafeteria. I think it's incredible and would love to recreate at home. Anyone have a good recipe? Most tomato-basil soup recipes come out tasting like pasta sauce imho, but I think Cafeteria's is awesome...

    I, too, do not know about Cafeteria's but love the roasted tomato soup from Tyler Florence on food network.

      I don't know about Cafeteria's, but I like the looks of Ina Garten's recipe from the food network website

        I made the Ina Garten recipe tonight. It's a winner. I probably used about 2 more teaspoons of salt than she recommends and I also put about 6 anchovies in, along with a teaspoon of baking soda at the end
