Local Souper Stars Shine at Crowne Plaza

Local Souper Stars Shine at Crowne Plaza

Our 16th Annual Souper Bowl broke all records. Thirty local eateries entered chowders, gumbos, and bisques. Five hundred attendees–our largest turnout ever!–used 7,000 sample cups to pick their favorite soup. In the end, Cafe Sweet Street (pictured at left) served up an Alaskan King Crab Bisque to rule them all, but the competition was fierce.

Our other winners:

5th place: Wild Sage Coffee & Kitchen for its Sage-Sausage Soup

4th place: Queen City Family Restaurant for its Creamy Chicken Rice Soup

3rd place: Ganly’s Irish Pub & Restaurant for its Mulligatawny Soup

2nd place: Monte Lauro Italian Gourmet for its Roasted Duck Porcini Mushroom Bisque

Chef’s Choice Award: Building 24 for its New England’s Getting Smoked Clam Chowder

Thanks to our generous sponsors, hardworking volunteers, and overwhelming community support, Souper Bowl generated over $60,000 to fund our programs and services.
