Cold potato soup, extra fancy

Just take a sip, you'll like it
Summer's a great time for cold soups like gazpacho or a fruity chilled-melon concoction. This potato-and-leek potage is traditionally served in all seasons, but it's particularly popular during the sultry summer months. The French vichyssoise -- correctly pronounced, according to the Food Lover's Companion, as vishsh-ee-Swahz and not vinsch-ee-Swah -- served at this popular bistro is decadently rich -- almost too rich to eat more than a few bites. The consistency is close to melted frozen custard, and the fat content may be nearly that high.

Which local restaurant serves this soup?
