Dear SOS: My husband and I have been regulars at Warszawa in Santa Monica for years. On hot days, I dream about their cold borscht, which is perfectly balanced and better than anything my grandmother ever made. Is there any way you could find out their recipe for me? Thank you so much!

Dear Susan: Warszawa’s cold borscht is bright, both in color and flavors, vibrant red beets complemented with the gentle tang of buttermilk and fresh cool flavors of dill and cucumber. It’s a simple recipe, but one of the best we’ve had.
