Went to La Bonne Soup on 55th Street last night and, although they would not take a reservation for 2, the owner said it would be a 10-15 minute wait and he was right on the money! French Onion Soup was awesome as was the steak/frites. Although frozen shoestring-type fries, they were crispy. (Guess I was missing my Montreal frites.) The steak was cooked to perfection -- medium rare towards rare -- as ordered. With holdover time, some restaurants just can't seem to get that right, but La Boone Soupe had no problem. We sat upstairs and snagged a window seat so we could people watch. I can't say enough about the staff. Service at its best. Very accomodating. Didn't stay for dessert as we had to make Radio City by 8 pm (a short walk), but next time!!
Thanks RGR -- another winner!
