February is really that sweet spot where we are craving soup for many reasons! So when we started to really think of our 5 favorite places to get a bowl of soup, that is where we had a little trouble. We tend to get a cup here or there with our meal but when we are looking for soup to be the showstopper, where do we recommend? Well, we know a few places where you will not be disappointed.
NO. 1 | UPSTREAM
Why it is Concierge Approved | You just have to get the Lobster Hot & Sour Soup! Not only does it taste amazing but the presentation in itself is well worth it. The bowl with fresh ingredients will be brought to the table. Once you are ready, your server will pour the broth over the top. The aroma of the broth melding with the Lobster makes the experience complete!
6902 Phillips Place | 704.556.7730
NO. 2 | 300 EAST
Why it is Concierge Approved | For the cheese lovers out there, we have one of the most ooey gooey, stretchy, melty, where have you been all my life experiences for you in soup style. The Baked French Onion Soup will give you all the feels! From the first spoonful you will break into all that provolone & pull back to get that string of cheese. Then you get into the salty broth with the onions & bread goodness. So good!
300 East Boulevard | 704.332.6507
NO. 3 | EDDIE'S PLACE
Why it is Concierge Approved | Looking for a southern classic, the She Crab Soup at Eddie's will warm you & leave you wanting more. What makes it so delicious? We would like to think it is the fresh coastal crab & the mix of sherry! The nice thing is with the sherry dispenser provided for you decide how much or little you would like. For us we think the sherry takes the soup to the next level. With large chunks of crab this creamy, hearty soup lives up to all the local raves.
617 S. Sharon Amity Road | 704.442.0147
NO. 4 | PANERA
Why it is Concierge Approved | Sometimes all you need is some creamy comfort food & Panera's Broccoli Cheddar Soup is just that! There is something so decadent about the creamy texture & the flavorful pop of cheddar cheese & broccoli. One of the things we love most about this soup is it tastes amazing everywhere & travels well. They even deliver! A Variety of Locations | www.panerabread.com
NO. 5 | LINCOLN'S HABERDASHERY
Why it is Concierge Approved | Looking for something a little different? Have you ever had bread soup? We have to say the Bread Soup at Lincoln's Haberdashery is unbelievably good! This Italian flavored soup is complete with chicken broth, a little tomato, topped with parmesan, basil and then the bread is added to soak up all that goodness. We should warn you that when they sell out, it's out...but so worth it!
