The Soup Bowl of Park Slope, a seasonal soup stand that's developed quite a cult following since first opening back in 2010, has opened in the space on Seventh Avenue between Eighth and Ninth Streets recently vacated by Uncle Louie G's Ice Cream, which closed for the season.
Chef Richard Gussoff, who lives in the neighborhood and made a name for himself as head chef at several Manhattan restaurants, will be preparing soups daily of fresh seasonal ingredients, with a rotating roster. The entire menu can be found on their website, and this year it's expanded to include salads and sandwiches. If you'd like to be notified of daily specials via email, you can sign up here.
While last year a second location on Park Place near Flatbush Avenue was a success, this year he's back down to just one shop in its regular location. If you haven't tried these soups yet (especially the butternut squash lobster bisque), I would strongly recommend not letting another winter pass by without doing so.
