Soup's on at these Twin Cities hotspots

When temperatures drop, Minnesotans instinctively turn to soup, taking refuge in everything from pho to chicken noodle. Rather than turn their backs on winter, many Twin Cities chefs find inspiration in our deep-freeze climate, conjuring up magic in their soup pots. A typical response comes from Ben Jacoby of the Craftsman in Minneapolis. “I love making soup,” he said. “It’s not like a steak, that you salt and pepper and put on the grill. With soup, you really have to put time, and attention, and love into it.”

My favorite restaurant soup in the Twin Cities is the sea bass "pho" (to be had Fri-Sat at Quang's). What's yours?

Jake's City Grille serves up a Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo that is awesome! The spicy sausage gives the soup a great kick and they are not stingy with the shrimp either. This is the best soup in town in my opinion!

I had a Cognac tomato soup the other night at Pracna that knocked my socks off.

Why didn't you venture outside of Minneapolis for even ONE example? There are plenty of great restaurants outside of Minneapolis.

Well Rick, without mentioning "Tanpopo" In St Paul this list is just not legit! Give me any of their Udon soups anytime to ward off Minnesota cold winters!
