See you ladle! Nine soups we’ll be slurping all season

See you ladle! Nine soups we’ll be slurping all season

One of the best things about saying hello to cooler weather? It finally makes sense to eat soup again. Here are nine of our favorites.

(above, left to right) Petit Pois

Tender onions and broth-soaked bread await beneath a canopy of melted cheese in this sinful French onion.

Blue Ridge Country Store

A no-frills chicken noodle, fully loaded with organic veggies, hormone-free chicken and penne noodles in a deceptively peppery broth.

Court Square Tavern

A roast beef chili just like mom made (but the downtown spot won’t scrimp on the extra sharp cheddar).



You’d be remiss not to mix the pico de gallo and sour cream directly into the bowl of this traditional black bean soup.

Revolutionary Soup

Spice alert! If you like it hot, the chicken tortilla’s a good bet: chicken, tomatoes and homemade tortillas on the side for sipping.

Littlejohn’s Deli

Pulled chicken winds its way around fluffy dumplings in a thick, creamy sauce-like soup.



This jambalaya—shrimp, chicken and andouille sausage over rice—has enough kick to get you down to New Orleans and back.

Thai 99 II

A spoonful of the Tom Kha Gai gets you chicken, lemongrass and mushrooms in a creamy coconut broth.


Shrimp and mussels take center stage in this zuppa di pesce show, which also features Calabrian chilis and housemade fish stock.
