French Onion Soup Review: West Street Grille

C


Nestled behind a hotel and boasting a famous chef whose name I didn't bother to remember, West Street Grille has all the ambience and bustle of a popular and successful restaurant without all the bother of a good bowl of soup.

Served in a bowl, the dish nevertheless looked appetizing, but succumbed ultimately to that Achilles heel of FOS: too much salt. If the supposedly talented chef was worth his salt he wouldn't have used so much. It was so mediocre I resort to bad puns.

Not overall terrible, but suffering from a fatal amount of average. Forgetfully limp bread, thin, carelessly applied cheese and terrible aftertaste. In fact the aftertaste is the only thing that really stuck with me.

The West Street Grille is at 770 O St, Lapeer, Michigan, U.S.A.
