MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A local eatery received a special recognition, thanks to a very special tomato soup.

The Brick restaurant, which has locations in Macon and Milledgeville, was named as having one of the “100 Plates Locals Love,” as voted by the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s tourism division.

The menu item that won them the mention, simply called creamy tomato soup, will be featured as one of those 100 plates in the state’s very own culinary guide, Georgia Eats.

“It’s pretty amazing,” said The Brick waitress Alexis Freeman. “You have so many customers come, and they’re like… oh my gosh, we came from so and so place so many miles away, and we just give them the best experience possible.”

In just one hour on busy nights, Freeman says she can see fifty bowls of the soup ordered by hungry patrons.

The Georgia Eats guide is part of Georgia’s culinary initiative, which according to a press release is designed to, “… [showcase] the state’s authentic experiences that revolve around food.”

The dishes that rounded out the final 100 were selected from nearly 600 nominations.
