Banish the Brrr
Soup as Art's corn and crabmeat chowder is the perfect antidote to a
chilly January day. It's full-flavored, rich and has generous amounts of crabmeat. A
10-ounce cup is $4.25, a pint is $7 and a quart is $12.50 at Soup as Art, 8321 Third Ave.,
Brooklyn; (718) 680-3334. Owner Joseph Gannascoli also sells 15 other soups, such as New
Orleans gumbo, Cuban black bean and cream of roasted wild mushroom, along with nearly two
dozen sandwiches and a dozen pasta dishes.

One of Joseph's many talents include cooking which he has taken his love
for and put his passions into his restaurant, Soup As Art. Opened in 1997, basking in the
shadow of the Verrazzano Narrows Bridge, this Bay Ridge location is the idea place to have
a bite to eat, lunch or dinner.
Upon entering one is greeted with a eclectic wall murals. This
multitextured montage is almost as interesting as the diversified menu. In fact there are
over 200 separate pieces of art displayed in a very tasteful manner.
The diversified menu, with over 60 different choices, can satisfy any
craving one might have, from full bodied soups, delightful sandwich wraps, huge portions
of pasta, and fresh salads to choose from. Beverages range from a simple soda to a
colossal range of smoothies, and other healthy juices.
The service was great, every meal prepared individually for the order. I
ordered the French Onion soup, which was absolutely delightful. I followed with the
Grilled Chicken with roasted red peppers. I found this very tasty.
I washed my meal down with a smoothie, which its name describes it
Going out to interview Joe, I never thought I'd end up doing a
restaurant review, but Soup as Art, is a must stop. So easy to get to, right of the
Verrazano Narrows Bridge, it is definitely not out of the way! Tell Joe I sent you!
