obviously the heat is playing into this craving, but i must have gazpacho tonite. Who is making a good version these days?

    3 Girls Bakery in Pike Place Market. It's the only version I've had that doesn't taste like a bowl of salsa. It's amazing.

      you are right it is a fine line between soup and condiment. I had a green gazpacho at Poppy that was lovely, but it was just a sip.

      thx - will give it a try!

      Serafina in Eastlake sometimes does a gazpacho as a daily special. I had it there the other night when it was sweltering. And you can often eat outside on their patio, which helps. Once, a while ago, I had their white gazpacho, which was cucumber-based and accompanied by sliced almonds. Very, very, nice, light, refreshing. Caused me to get out the food mill and make it myself once, though I never got close to their smooth texture.

      Have also had it at Olivar on Capitol Hill. Also Taberna del Alabardero in Belltown.

        Reviews say that Taberna del Alabarnero has good gazpacho; my Spanish neighbors rave about this place.
