La Bonne Soupe: "French onion soup, anyone?" La Bonne Soupe Tip by heryanta

La Bonne Soupe, New York City: 4 reviews and 7 photos


Caught a cold during my first ever trip to New York so my friend who lived there took me out for a lunch because she thought the soup would make me better :)

I am glad that she did for this is a very nice charming little restaurant. Don't come here if you are planning to hold an intimate conversation since there's very little space in the restaurant and the tables are very close together.

The onion soup was just wonderful and I also can recommend the crepes. Service is slightly slow by New York standard but then again I went a day after Christmas so they were understaffed. Also, it gets really busy during lunch hour so be prepared to wait for 30 mins if you do not have a reservation.
