The diva of delicious, Mara Davis visited Lois Reitzes on “City Lights” to discuss the best lunch and dinner spots to keep you warm during Super Bowl week. Below are some of Mara’s favorite soup locations and the items she recommends from their menus.
Order: Turkey chili
New TGM Soup
Order: Tomato Bisque, Chicken & Mushroom, Italian Wedding Soup, and Brisket Chili, each paired with a bread selection baked fresh daily at TGM Bread, as well as a selection of ready made salads.
Chef Todd Ginsberg also will serve bone broth, with a rotating selection of add-ins, like parsley and lemon or miso and shiitake mushrooms, according to Davis.
C & S Chowder House, Roswell.
Order from three styles of chowder: New England, Manhattan and Rhode Island.
Another type of chowder is also served in Rhode Island that is a sort of hybrid between the clear and the Manhattan tomato-based variety. It is made with a tomato broth base and potatoes, but doesn’t feature any other vegetables, Davis said.
Taqueria Del Sol
Order: Creamy shrimp corn chowder. The soup is rich, warm, and not too spicy, filled with shrimp swimming in a creamed corn broth mixed with poblano peppers, Davis said.
Order: Tomato bisque
Order: She Crab Soup- a rich soup, similar to bisque, made of milk or heavy cream, crab or fish stock, Atlantic blue crab meat and crab roe, and a small amount of dry sherry added as it is plated.
Bread and Butterfly
Order: Tomato soup topped with a puff pastry, but puncture the pastry and watch as it slowly dissolves into the tomato broth, giving the soup a lovely, creamy texture.
Seed Kitchen & Bar
Order: Butternut squash soup
