We opened our first location more than 20 years ago in NYC, in a small storefront on 64th and Lexington, with the mission of bringing hearty, high quality comfort food to busy, hungry people. In a tiny kitchen at the back of the store, we made rich, delicious soups, while at the counter up front, we ladled them up to hundreds of New Yorkers each day. We chose a name that described our food—robust, wholesome, and promoting wellness, body and soul.
We've created hundreds of soups since the beginning—for a deliciously wide variety that changes every day. No two menus are ever the same. But our soup is still made the same way it was the day we first opened: 100% from scratch, in our own kitchen, using local ingredients. And that's something we'll never change.
