This midtown bistro is full of French country charm (red-and-white-checked tablecloths, exposed beams, waitstaff with accents). The clientele is perhaps less authentic: shoppers, out-of-towners and solo-dining old-timers. Cheese fondue, quiche, crêpes and omelettes are satisfying, but the raison d’être is, of course, the namesake bonne soupe. Whether you’re in the mood for classic cheese-topped French onion or smooth and creamy tomato andalouse, you can get your bowlful à la carte, or as a prix fixe meal with bread, salad, an unmemorable dessert and even a glass of house wine for just $13.95.

Really nice authentic French bistro experience in midtown. Great for a long lunch or early dinner. The menu is filled with both light and crisp and heartier and creamier options, and everything is quite tasty. Service staff is a little on the slower side, but well mannered and polite. The ambiance is quite pleasant, and there is even a small outside terrace when the weather is nice upstairs. Overall a good experience when in the area.
