Long Soup Lines On Smith

Hope you had a chance to take advantage of this Saturday's Second Annual Smith Street Soup Festival. It was a blast and the perfect activity on a beautiful autumn day.

The event is based on a simple idea: buy tickets which allow you to sample the specially prepared soup of some of Restaurant Row's favorite eateries like Seersucker, from Provence en Boite to Chestnut , Raga, Bombay Dream , and Sue Perette.

The various soup entries competed for gold, silver and bronze Ladles, which were handed out by four judges.(see list of winners below)

Some of the proceeds for the event will be shared with High School For International Studies to support the wonderful high school's culinary arts program.
