    Does Circa have it on their menu? If not, perhaps they will make it for you.

      Noi Due serves their French onion soup this way. It's delicious.

        Last week Noi Due told me they did not do this. Will ask again. And will check out U cafe. I like that place a lot...

          i dislike onion soup in a bread bowl. Generally a large amt of the soup gets absorbed into the bread forcing me to eat more bread than I wish to.

            They work better with cream soups.

              Onion soup is supposed to be put in a broiler/salamander after it's prepared (to melt/brown the cheese) so I don't think a bread bowl is the best way to serve it.

        I believe U Cafe on the Upper East Side serves soup in a bread bowl as well.
