French Onion Soup

I often crave a good crock of baked French Onion Soup.... but have yet to find my go-to place to get it. There's nothing better than the rich flavor of beef broth, caramelized onions, a dry/crusty crouton and gooey melted swiss cheese!

I used to love the French Onion Soup at "Dive", Steven Spielberg's yellow-submarine themed restaurant in the Century City Shopping Mall. Sadly, Dive tanked in 1999 and I've been missing it ever since.

Anybody have any favorite places for French Onion Soup in LA? Anywhere from the San Fernando Valley to the Marina Del Rey.... willing to travel for my fix!

    1. re: yogachik

      Just tried the French Onion Soup at Anisette..... fabulous! Thanks for the wonderful rec!

    2. I miss Dive, too! My favorite soup is at The Raymond in Pasadena. So good!

      1. yogachik's recommendation for Anisette is a great one. I also like the version at Le Marmiton on Montana a lot.

        1. Third the rec for Anisette, Comme Ca's version is wonderful too.

          1. I'm probaly going to be shot down for this but I really love the French Onion soup at Hamburger Hamlet. It tastes rich and there plenty of gooey cheese with a nice crust. There's still one in Pasadena on S, Lake Ave.
