As we head into the final stretch of winter, it's a good time to take advantage of the delicious soups du jour at lunchtime in Lincoln Square. There is no shortage of great lunch spots with hot soup. Check out the following eateries and enjoy a hot midday meal.
Whole Foods Market (10 Columbus Circle) has a daily assortment of up to 8 different soups at the hot bar. Frequent options include split pea soup, corn chowder, Mom's chicken soup, and many more. You can grab corn bread or oyster crackers to pair with your soup at the station, too.
At Le Pain Quotidien (60 West 65th Street), grab a bowl of chicken soup with vegetables and quinoa, or take a delicious chance on the café's organic soup of the day, which rotates regularly. Each soup comes with fresh bread.
Gourmet Garage (155 West 66th Street) has a self-serve soup station with a number of rotating soup selections, including chicken and dumpling soup, three lentil chili, classic black bean and more. Above the soups you'll find a selection of breads you can pair with your hot lunch.
Épicerie Boulud (1900 Broadway) serves up delicious soup du jour for your lunchtime needs. The different daily selections include potato leek, butternut squash, roasted tomato, and others. Soups come with a piece of bread, or order the soup and 1/2 a sandwich combo.
Breads Bakery (1890 Broadway) is another bakery café with hot lunches, including delicious daily soups. Stop in to try their Moroccan soup or split pea and enjoy a fresh piece of Breads' bread on the side.
Bouchon Bakery & Café (10 Columbus Circle) offers two daily soups at lunchtime with delicious ingredients. Choose the Soupe à la Tomate if you're in the mood for a classic tomato, or the Soupe de Poulet, a chicken soup with egg noodles. 
Our two local delis, Alan's Marketplace and Melissa's Gourmet Deli also offer daily soup selections, or at Melissa's, as part of a soup and half sandwich deal. Often times it is a classic chicken based soup, hearty and affordable.
Take your next lunch at one of Lincoln Square's local soup spots to warm up as we wait for spring. Browse our Neighborhood Guide for other dine-in restaurants with soups.
