The book Julie and Julia begins with Julie’s search for ingredients to make Julia Child’s classic potato leek soup. Ever since I read those opening paragraphs I have been on the hunt for a bowl of potato leek soup that would make me swoon.
I found it at Ute City. Located at 308 E. Hopkins Avenue, Ute City is a fun and casual restaurant where you can enjoy a relaxing lunch or dinner as you watch locals, celebrities amble by. You can also swoon over Chef Peter’s silky, creamy potato leek soup. Just a hint – if you order bacon on the side – it’s even better.
Ute City is competing in this weekends Soupskol. Make sure you check it out.
