French Onion Soup

I love soup, and French Onion is one of my favorites! I try it almost whenever it is on the menu. This nice cool weather we are having is getting me in the mood..... Any suggestions???

  1. La Frite in Woodland Hills
    Ruth's Chris
    Mimi's Cafe isn't bad either, depending on the location
    There is a place in South Coast Plaza, a sandwich/salad French place that does a good version

    1. Cafe de la Gare in S Pas and Cafe Beaujolais in Eagle Rock. For all its drawbacks, Les Freres Taix on Sunset in LA has pretty good onion soup - really a sauce espagnole with cheese on top.

        Didn't you think that Cafe dela Gare's soup was not traditional? I was surprised that it did not have the rich beef broth, it had an almost chicken stock type broth. I was almost dissapointed because it wasn't what I expected, but it was good.

      2. Pinot has a great french onion soup.

          1. MORTON'S (only at lunch) $10-
