What is the difference between tomato soup and tomato bisque?

Bisque is a French word for a creamy soup made of pureed vegetables. Tomato bisque is made with pureed tomatoes. Tomato soup is also made with pureed tomatoes, but tomato soup could still have chunks of tomato in it. Bisque is by definition pureed to a smooth texture, however it could be garnished with chunks of tomato. Ultimately, they are very similar.
