During the colder months, one of the most popular meals for staying warm is a nice bowl of soup, but with a nearly endless variety of styles and tastes available, it can be hard to find the perfect bowl, especially in the depths of New York City. If you’re looking for the perfect meal to warm you up this winter, check out some of these delicious dishes and slurp up some of the best soup the city has to offer.
Just as its name suggests, Soup Spot is the perfect place to be if you’re in the mood for a bowl of warm broth. With over 17 different varieties made daily from scratch, this selection of both creative and traditional soups will satisfy even the most discriminate of tastes.
True to his name, the Soup Man provides a selection of authentic and inventive soups accompanied by the perfect sides and a hunk of bread in order to not only warm up diners, but also fill them up as well.
While its four soups offer less selection than some of its counterparts, the old saying does go “quality over quantity”, and this midtown bistro excels on the taste front. Their most popular is their French Onions, but the lamb and barley and creamy tomato are also standout successes.
While this 24-hour diner’s soup selection is also on the small side, the soups that they do provide are some of the best in the city. Known for their pea soup, Cozy invites guests to warm up from the inside out as they dine on delicious food in a comfortable setting.
