Hearty bowl of soup near Carnegie Hall?

Desidero Nov 30, 2011 10:56 AM

Can anyone recommend a place to get a hearty bowl of soup before a concert at Carnegie Hall? My first instinct was to go to Menkui Tei -- the chronically long lines at Totto Ramen put it out of contention -- but am looking for other ideas. I'm not stuck on Japanese and am open to all cuisines.

Thanks in advance.

    Menchanko-Tei is great too.

      Maybe French Onion at La Bonne Soupe or Benoit? I tend to prefer Menchanko Tei on 55th to Menkui Tei for hearty Japanese soups.
