Where can I find vichyssoise or other cold soups, like cold cucumber, avocado, or asparagus?

Kendall's downtown had vichyssoise with their special Bastille Day menu, and it was wonderful. I'm craving more along those lines. I already have a great place for gazpacho (Le Pain Quotident), so I don't need recommendations for that. But any other cold soup suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    1. i think Stefan's at LA Farm has a chilled cucumber soup on the menu right now, but you might want to confirm with them.

      Mendocino Farms (multiple locations) and Rose Cafe in Venice sometimes offer a chilled soup as their daily special but you'll have to find out what & when.

      and if you like beets, there are a lot of options for borscht.
