  • Summary

    For decades, the restaurant Lutèce—with chef André Soltner behind the stove—was the pinnacle of French cuisine in New York City. Soltner's Alsace onion tart, one of the best we've ever tasted, was the inspiration for this version.

    • 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 4 to 5 tablespoons ice water
    • 4 bacon slices (1/4 lb), cut crosswise into 1/8- to 1/16-inch-wide strips
    • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 2 lb onions, halved lengthwise and very thinly sliced crosswise (10 cups)
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 cup crème fraîche or heavy cream
