La Bonne Soupe

48 W 55th St
Manhattan, NY 10019

Midtown West


La Bonne Soupe is certainly a place for a hearty bowl of French onion soup, but its name comes from a more obscure origin—the title of a popular avant-garde French comedy that ran in Paris in the 1950s, starring Jeanne Moreau. La Bonne Soupe also means "the good life," and this agreeable, old-fashioned bistro does its best to deliver. The menu hasn't changed much since La Bonne Soupe opened in 1973, including Gallic classics like escargot, quiche, crêpes, pâté, croque monsieur, fondue and chocolate mousse. Nostalgia also comes into play with the prices: dinner, with a glass of wine, can run less than $25.
