Last Night’s Leftovers: Soupy Scenes Edition

Take a peek inside the retail shell that will become the first District Taco location inside the actual District.

[Washingtonian] Westend Bistro's Eric Ripert thinks National Airport's Matsutake Sushi […]

Ditch the Bacon of the Month Club: Soupergirl Launches Soupscriptions

Joining the famed bacon-, cheese- and wine-of-the-month clubs is something decidedly more humble: soup. Soupergirl, Sara Polon's bastion of broth in Takoma, has announced its "soupscriptions" plan, just in time for the coziest season of the year.

Rising Stock: At Toki Underground, the Broth is Finally Ready

Peaches and pigs’ feet. That’s the secret. Or, at least, part of it, anyway. I’m referring to the ambrosial broth at Toki Underground. That alluring aroma tickles your nose hairs the moment you ascend the stairs, wooing you onward to the jovial host with the clipboard, where the fragrance reveals itself to be a cruel, […]

It’s a Great Day for Soup, But What About a Soupdrink?

While it's hard to quantify whether today's weather as "a big snow," it's easy to agree that today is a great day for soup. For me, a giant bowl of soup with chunky vegetables—with some sort of cream base—always seems like a great idea as winter weather sets in. But I've been in the mood […]

Kora’s Eggplant Gazpacho: A Taste of Spain at Morou Ouattara’s Trattoria

I was eager to see what the Brothers Ouattara would do with Italian cuisine at Kora, so the wife and I jumped into the ol' global warming machine on a recent Sunday to try the brunch at this new Crystal City outpost, located in the old Bebo Trattoria space. Brunch is never my preferred way […]

Free Soup Tonight at Grapeseed in Bethesda

Not Heineman's gazpacho. Like so many other restaurateurs these days, Grapeseed chef and owner Jeff Heineman is just trying to get folks in the door. His latest ploy is to give away free soup to all his friends on Facebook — and to all the fans of a Facebook group devoted to people who hate […]

Martha’s Table Soup: “Robust”

Martha's Table doesn't whip up a vat of soup the way you and I do. They don't decide, Hey, let's do a lentil with sausage and some fine spices, and then go out and procure the ingredients.
