French Onion Soup Without Cheese?

I know the economy is horrible and restaurants are cutting back. I'm still a bit floored that a small, $5 cup of French onion soup arrived with no cheese on top of the croutons. My husband asked the waitress where the cheese was and she replied that she asked the chef the same thing. He told her that it was the way they served it. She was clearly befuddled.

This was a mid-range, indy restaurant and it was the featured soup of the day. Am I being too picky? No Gruyere, no Swiss? The shame. This place was a regular on our rotation until they began cheaping out on ingredients. I'm done with them for good over 25 cents worth of cheese.

Our entrees brought no joy either. Just sad.
