La Bonne Soupe is a cozy little bistro in mid-town – just perfect for solo dining or a casual dinner with a colleague. You walk down the stairs into a small dining room that’s bursting with energy. (Note: There’s seating upstairs too with choice seats on a small balcony outside in the summer.) I generally prefer to be seated on the first floor amid the hustle and bustle with tables crammed so close together you almost don’t feel like you’re dining alone.
Menu: French bistro fare
Faves: The house special – A bowl of hearty soup that comes with salad, bread, drink (house wine, beer, coffee or soda) and dessert for under $20.00.
Recommendation: If what you order doesn’t come with fries – get some -You won’t be sorry! (yum!)
