February may be over, but newsflash: It's still cold and dreary outside. Avoid Georgia storms and snow flurries by staying indoors, cozying up to a communal table or corner booth, and ordering something that'll keep you nice and warm until the sun decides to show up again. No, we're not talking about bourbon— from spicy broths to hearty stews, here are 11 winter soups worth trying in Atlanta this season.

1. Cardamom Hill

Copy Link
1700 Northside Dr NW Ste A5
Atlanta, GA 30318
(404) 549-7012
Visit Website

Warm your body and your soul with the Bon Appetit-featured Kerala-style beef stew from Cardamom Hill chef/owner Asha Gomez. Gomez's sunny personality and expert use of spices from her native Kerala infuse every bite of this stew with warmth and flavor to fill your belly AND your spirit.

2. The Shed at Glenwood

Copy Link
475 Bill Kennedy Way SE
Atlanta, GA 30316
(404) 835-4363
Visit Website

While The Shed has long been known for its brunch and popular Wednesday night slider night, don't overlook the dinner menu. Chef Richards has slowly been putting his stamp on the kitchen, and the parsnip soup with pear relish and pumpernickel croutons is no exception.

3. The General Muir

Copy Link
1540 Avenue Pl NE Ste B-230
Atlanta, GA 30329
(678) 927-9131
Visit Website

The dream team behind the Westside's popular brunch spot, West Egg, and Chef Todd Ginsberg have brought the quintessential Jewish deli to Atlanta— and with it, the best matzoh ball soup in the city. Bagel and schmear optional.

4. 4th & Swift

Copy Link
621 North Ave NE
Atlanta, GA 30308
(678) 904-0160
Visit Website

Spice up a cold winter day with 4th & Swift's creamy sunchoke soup. Jay Swift uses green curry-braised clams, Hobbs bacon, and black olive oil in the soup for the perfect balance of heat, meat, and flavor.

5. Souper Jenny

Copy Link
56 E Andrews Dr NW
Atlanta, GA 30305
(404) 237-7687
Visit Website

Souper Jenny's is the worst-kept secret in Atlanta: heaping bowls of soup, fresh salads, and Thursday night s'mores. While some of her favorites are available year-round, get the roasted butternut squash and winter greens with kale and Swiss chard right now. Definitely worth standing in that line in the freezing cold!

6. Gio's Chicken Amalfitano

Copy Link
1099 Hemphill Avenue
Atlanta, GA 30318
(404) 347-3874
Visit Website

When you're nursing a cold (okay, hangover) or just craving good old-fashioned chicken noodle soup, skip the canned stuff and head to Gio's Chicken Amalfitano. The man who brought Antico Pizza Napoletana to the Atlanta masses hits another home run with his Zuppa di Pollo, a simple yet hearty chicken soup. Your Italian grandmother (or the one you wish you had) would approve.

7. Aria Restaurant

Copy Link
490 E Paces Ferry Rd NE
Atlanta, GA 30305
(404) 233-7673
Visit Website

The creamless celery root soup at Aria is legendary, and for good reason. Featuring just celery root, truffles, Parmigiano Reggiano, a splash of chicken stock, and slow-cooked leeks, you won't miss the cream— and might be tempted to order seconds.

8. Pho Dai Loi 2

Copy Link
4186 Buford Hwy NW, Ste G
Atlanta, GA 30345
(404) 633-2111

Flavorful broth, the meat of your choice, and plenty of chili oils, pastes, and spices to amp up the heat: There's a reason people declare this the best pho in the city.

9. Miso Izakaya

Copy Link
619 Edgewood Ave SE
Atlanta, GA 30312
(678) 701-0128
Visit Website

The noodle soup at Miso has a 36-hour tonkotsu broth and ramen made just for the Old Fourth Ward restaurant. It's only offered for weekday lunch.

10. White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails

Copy Link
270 Peachtree St Ste 100
Atlanta, GA 30303
(404) 524-7200
Visit Website

Epic soup in downtown Atlanta? Yes, it's true. Chef Joshua Hopkins (formerly of Abbatoir and STG Trattoria) recently took over the kitchen at White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails, and it's hard to go wrong with his Brunswick stew, which includes roasted white Shrimp, house-made andouille, and smoked pork belly. In a BOWL.

11. Local Three

Copy Link
3290 Northside Pkwy NW
Atlanta, GA 30327
(404) 968-2700
Visit Website

Roasted sweet potato soup gets a spicy kick at Local Three with chunks of lobster, coconut, lime, cilantro, and a generous heap of toasted peanuts, all in one heaping bowl of almost-drinkable goodness.
