It's not quite fall as yet in Manhattan but I'm already in a mood for soup at lunch just about every other day. A colleague introduced me to Cafe Medina located on 17th street between 5th and Broadway, just off Union Square.
What is unique about Cafe Media and that distinguishes them from other neighbourhood cafes is their soup selection. They make amazingly flavourful soups using seasonal ingredients. Yesterday, I got the pumpkin corn bisque for lunch. The soup had a delicious sweet and spicy flavour combo and a great texture. The others I passed on were butternut squash, tuscan tomato bread soup and celery pear. And of course, all the non veggies ones. If you're ever in the Union Square area, you've got to stop at Cafe Medina for lunch.
