Soup of the evening: the wonderfully therapeutic effects of the tom kha gai in last week's review of Royal Thai made me think of other great soups around town, because it's the season for soup-slurping. So don't forget the smoked chicken and grilled corn chowder at Beau Nash, the canh chua comat Mai's Oriental, the black bean and sirloin chili at Fog City Diner, the pinto bean soup at Mi Cocina, the tortilla soup at Cantina Laredo, the artichoke-oyster soup at Crescent City, the leek and potato soup at Clair de Lune, and of course, the mushroom soup at The Grape (pictured above).
