Is there anything more satisfying than a warm soup with some crackers on a cold New York day? That's the kind of feeling that Eight Ladles, a new soup and cracker bar on the Upper West Side, hopes to deliver.
Found inside gastropub Thyme & Tonic, the new destination at 474 Columbus Ave offers eight different types of soups alongside a slew of homemade crackers. It's also kosher, vegetarian and vegan friendly.
From a classic matzah ball soup to a jamabalaya (cajun spiced tomatoes, peppers, red beans with rice and Impossible meat), a potato and corn chowder (made with vegan baacon and chive topping), a Yemenite lentil soup (turmeric and coriander spiced red lentils with vegetables) and a Moroccan split pea, the soups span all culinary genres and can be ordered in a 12oz bowl or 32oz quart.
As for the homemade crackers, which might very well be the most exciting aspect of the new business, diners can order the artisan cheddar, the everything, the zaa'atar, the superseed or the olive oil, oregano and garlic cracker. Yes, they all sound crackling-ly delicious.
