Last year's Smith Street Soup Crawl was such a success that the event is obviously becoming an annual event. The date for the second crawl has just been scheduled for October 22th, so mark your calendar.The same great restaurants will be taking part in the event and will be serving their own special soups on that day.
From the organizer, Bette Stoltz of South Brooklyn Local Development Corporations (SBLDC):
"The Foodies of New York came by the thousands last year and they loved it. Who does not love a delicious soup? Soup is everyones' secret pleasure, but all to often it just doesn't get the respect and attention it deserves on the menu and in the reviews. So Smith's Street's Restaurant Row set out to do something about it and is once again dedicating an autumn afternoon to an homage to everything from minestrone to avgolemono, from lobster bisque to mulligatawney, from mondongo to pumpkin, from matzoh ball to gumbo, from Lunetta to Seersucker, from Provence en Boite to Chestnut , Raga, Bombay Dream , Sue Perette, and on and on.
This is also Smith Street's day of support for the wonderful high school culinary arts program they helped to found in the local public High School For International Studies. Students from the school will be selling tickets for 4 oz. "tastings" on the corners of Smith & President, Smith & Butler, and Smith & Bergen Streets starting at 1PM -- 5 tastings for $5.00, 12 tastings for $10.00, and for families with children -- 25 tastings for $20.00. Tasters walk from crock to crock along 14 blocks of Smith Street. The proceeds will be shared with the school to buy food for the cooking program which does not otherwise have enough of a budget to keep supplied all year.
In case of rain on Saturday the raindate is the next day (10/23) same times."
See you there?
