On days when the mercury creeps up, I can't help but crave Trillium's gazpacho. I love sitting in the cool, sparsely decorated space and ordering a glass of wine (check out the Riesling of the Month special) and the summery soup off the smorgasbord menu.
What I like best about this dish is that chef-owner Ryan Leinonen gives the often-puréed soup texture with diced tomatoes and cucumbers. He also uses copious amounts of dill, something that's unexpected but perfectly in line with the restaurant's Scandinavian bent. The nutty, fried cornbread croutons served on top go quickly and the sour cream adds a hint of richness.
Tip: Order a cone of the portabello fries with blue cheese aïoli and call it dinner.
