Best French Onion Soup in Nola

We're headed down to NOLA in early March and have lots of food plans (much of it thanks to the posts at this board). I was last in New Orleans in the late 80s for conventions and had the best onion soup ever at a restaurant in the French Quarter that remains nameless to me (too young think about remembering at the time...or maybe it was the hurricane(s) at Pat O'Brien's...). Does anybody know of any restaurants today that serve up a memorable onion soup? Thanks - looking forward to our visit!

  1. I hear Le Crepe Nanou located uptown has a decent one. I've never ordered it though bc i always have the mussels and escargot which are great.

    I'm interested to hear what everyone else says...Id love to know the answer myself !!!

    1. Cafe Degas on Esplanade Ave.

      1. Agree with both above...Crepe Nanou is very good. Cafe Degas is also very good. Try both and decide.

        1. agree with both above on cafe degas. great onion soup & the rest of the menu isn't bad either. resturant itself is a treat.

          1. Flaming Torch has very good french onion soup.
