A local answer to the soulless suburban Panera Bread chain, Brodo takes the focus away from fluffy oven offerings and puts it on what everyone really cares about, anyway: the soup. The brothy force is strong in this one. Ten soups, rotating daily, range from well-loved faves like gumbo, brocoli/cheddar and three-bean chili to hearty takes on classics, like French onion hooked up with pot roast. The solid selection of sandwiches and salads, plus roomy outdoor seating in United Plaza, hooks even the most fickle Center City lunchers.
