Sorry about the double post for today ~ but my coworker and I just had lunch at a wonderful place in downtown Reno.
süp ~ soup, salad, sandwiches at
719 S. Virginia Street…for all us “old-timers”, it’s the old Luciano’s place.
Soup (süp) n. A liquid food prepared from meat, fish or vegetable stock combined with various other ingredients and often containing solid pieces.
This is where we began our dream with the simple yet diverse dish shared in every culture around the world. It can be a brilliant beginning to a fine meal or a satisfying meal on its own. We hope you enjoy the joy of Süp! Christian & Kasey Christensen.
They’re open Monday-Saturday from 11am – 4pm and closed on Sundays.
It’s a small restaurant with about 7 or 8 tables that sit 4 people. When you go in, you order at the counter and then they seat you. Due to it’s size you can grab a “I’ll Share a Table” placard. They have six soups a day, along with five different sandwiches and five salads.
We both ordered a half Pesto Turkey sandwich with a cup of Chicken Tortilla soup. It didn’t take too long to get our plates ~ and it was a delightful surprise! Not only did we get the HUGE 1/2 sandwich and our nice size cup of soup, but a small side salad and a homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookie!
The Pesto Turkey was made of real turkey! House roasted turkey breast, pesto spread, provolone cheese, avocado, tomato, romaine and sprouts layered between fresh jalapeno jack bread (which was from The House of Bread on California Street).
The Chicken Tortilla soup was loaded with chunks of chicken, black beans and corn…very tasty with just the right amount of kick to it.
The salad was romaine and baby greens topped with Gorgonzola cheese (my favorite!), strawberry slices and some type of creamy vinaigrette.
If you’re in town ~ go visit! Excellent lunch! Great service! But get there when the doors open at 11! Busy, Busy, Busy!
