Soups come in all different styles, colors and flavors throughout Chicago’s culturally rich neighborhoods. From borscht in Ukrainian Village to matzo balls at a South Loop deli, the city’s soup scene is as vibrant as ever. And with winter upon us, it’s an ideal time to scope out everything Chicago has to offer by the bowlful. Here are eight soups to try right now.
French onion at Mon Ami Gabi
Few bowls conjure comfort like French onion soup. At Mon Ami Gabi, a bistro as French as they come, the onion soup au gratin is a tried-and-true fixture on par with the best in town. Loaded up with tender caramelized onions, hearty broth, bread and a crown of bubbling Gruyère cheese, it’s especially fitting for a blustery wintry night.
