Best French Onion Soup in Metro Detroit?

I have a serious French Onion soup problem. I'd love to know who serves the BEST in Southeast Michigan. Downtown, suburbs, Ann Arbor; fancy places, junky places, wherever. I am on a mission.

  1. Best I've had is the Earle in Ann Arbor. It's the real deal.

    1. Best I've had was at Boodles on 11 Mile Road at I-75.

      1. If you like a Swiss onion, Riffle's Homestyle in Northville on Main street is really good.

        Best regards, tony

        1. The Elmhurst Taproom, on Outer Drive in Dearborn. Casual neighborhood pub and grill.

          1. re: rweater

            I second this recommendation. It's a very generous serving, richly flavored, and so hot you won't be able to touch it for about ten minutes.

          2. Lucy's in Grosse Pointe Farms.
