Steve’s Greek has been a Newbury Street staple for years. I work nearby and eat lunch there every so often. Usually I order a Greek salad, Tzatiki or some Spanakopita (which is amazing, btw). On my last visit to Steve’s, I made a delicious discovery.
…so you’re saying the small soups are free? 😉
It was freezing and I was in the mood for soup. The waiter recommended I try theAvgolemono soup which I had never heard of, but it was “award winning,” so I gave it a shot. Avgolemono is a chicken and rice soup with lemon juice.
I’m still not sure of what award it actually won, but it no longer matters. Steve’s Avgolemono is excellent, there is really no other way to put it. The soup is made with egg, which makes the texture smooth and silky. The lemon flavor is so strong, but not overbearing. It has the perfect broth / chunkiness ratio. I love it. I’ve been getting it for lunch so often recently because the large is only $4.50 and I’m full before I finish it!
