Singing Soup

Some people, when presented with Vichyssoise, shake their heads and wonder why anyone with any sense would enjoy cold potato soup. I'm not one of them, nor is My Beloved. He noted this soup on the menu at Murray Circle first - otherwise, I'd have ordered it, myself.

The menu describes it as "Green garlic Vichyssoise with grilled grapes, shaved radish, cucumber and spiced almonds." We described it as smooth as a baby's butt, layered with flavors and beautifully presented.

Each taste was distinct as notes on a piano but if you scooped a spoonful of it all together, it sang like a Sweet Adelines quartet, smooth and joyous and modulated, with an extra note that lingers on the tongue even after the soup is gone. We shared sips of each others' soups - that may be gauche in such a nice restaurant but it just added to our enjoyment of our day off the rollercoaster.

I once made myself quite ill eating a whole pot of cold potato soup (so terribly ashamed).

Very decorated! Where were the grapes?
So. I gotta go down there and try two soups, now.

Ms Mouse, do you blame the soup or do you still like it?

Greg, lots of care went into the soup and the presentation. I love that place.

Cookiecrumb, the grapes were below the surface - submarine surprises.
