I have always liked Brasserie’s French onion soup, but recently I tried it again, and I have to say that it is better than ever.  Brasserie’s version of French onion soup comes in a huge bowl, covered with beautifully-browned and bubbly melted cheese, just the right texture—not too thick and not too thin to hold up to your happily digging spoon.  Underneath the baked cheese cover, is a tasty, hot onion broth, that contains a piece or two of soft French bread, lots of sweet onions, and some more gooey melted cheese.  The onion soup seems to be on Brasserie’s brunch, lunch and dinner menus at so you can get it almost any time of day.
