Soup Artwork in Sonoma – Green Garlic and Potato Leek Soup at El Dorado

Just this past weekend, I had the liberty to go for a beautiful drive to Sonoma when visiting San Francisco. This is one very cute town and I would love to go back and stay at least one night and do more wine tastings in town.

After trying and buying some wonderful wine at Bryter (www.bryter.com) in the Historic Sonoma Plaza we ventured on over to the Eldorado Hotel (www.eldoradosonoma.com) for some lunch.

It’s like soup art!
I ordered their Green Garlic and Potato Leek Soup. It  had smoked salmon, crispy fingerling potatoes, lemon pearls and creme fraiche.This was a very nice soup and probably the best looking soup I have ever been served up even though some soup was on the edge of bowl (just ignore that)! It’s like soup art! Just check out the creme fraiche lines in the soup picture above. I would like to try to do that in a soup in the future.

The Verdict of Green Garlic and Potato Leek Soup? The creme fraiche gave the soup a velvet taste, yet not too rich. I really loved how tiny the chives were chopped and how the chef fried up the fingerling potatoes. If I was to come back to Sonoma I would try the restaurant again for dinner for sure in a heart beat!
