Brodo is the Gucci of broths in NYC. It’s East Village location is just around the corner from our home and probably the only place that sells broths in to-go-mugs. There’s a small hole in the wall where you can order your soup (take their signature style) and it’s really the best on a cold day in NYC. Be aware of the price tag, though.
