In 1893 Charles Bookbinder created this iconic namesake soup in Philadelphia. It somehow made its way to Chicago, and onto the menu at Hugo's Frog Bar, where it's been a menu favorite since opening day. The soup is traditionally made with snapping turtle, but Hugo's puts its own twist on the dish by using fresh Lake Superior white fish. The tomato-based soup also has vegetables and a kick of Louisiana hot sauce.
