    Durant's serves a decadent cream of mushroom soup, but it's not available every day. Call ahead to see when it's up in the rotation of daily soups.

        The best I've had in town was @ Christopher's Fermeier Bistro. It was a creamy Mushroom Bisque w/ foie gras!

        It looks like it is a classic as it is featured on his new menu as well!

        Durant's cream of mushroom soup is some of the best I ever had. THe first time I had it, I could have happily eaten an entire pot of it for dinner. The waitress sent me home with a couple pints of it and made my week.

        I don't know what they put in it(not sure I want to know!) but that is some seriously good soup!

        Oh, I just had some wonderful cream of mush soup at Cafe Bink in Carefree. It is presented in a large shallow bowl with a mound of mixed mushrooms...then they ladle the soup over. Really, really good.
