Tomato soup

Secret Recipe: Smoky Tomato Soup from The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen

7x7 asks the city's chefs for the recipes to their most loved cocktails, bar snacks, starters, mains, and desserts. If there's a dish you can't stop thinking about and want to make at home, email lauren@7x7.com. Your wish may end up on the blog, along with the actual recipe from the chef.

Dip your favorite pressed sandwich (just like mom used to make) in a silky tomato soup like the lunch crowd at The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen in SoMa do. It's a simple soup, something you can pull together in fewer than 30 minutes, but it packs a lot of punch with smoky spices.

3 ounces unsalted butter

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Pop Goes Andy: Warhol Live!

While I have no plans to officially participate in the Facebook 25 Random Things About Me survey, I will share two brief things:

1) The soundtrack to my college years was informed by The Velvet Underground.

2) Quite shamelessly, I adore (but try to avoid) finger-food that consists of highly-processed, non-organic and hyper-packaged foodstuffs such as mini-grilled cheese, pigs-in-a-blanket and Strawberry Pop-Tarts.
