    Do you mean cassoulet? If so, I think Gascogne has a pretty good one. I'm not familiar with "casolette," so forgive me if I am off base.

      I, too, thought the o.p. was referring to "cassoulet." My husband's a cassoulet addict. He would agree with you that Gascogne's is very good. Another option.... A few days ago, he had it at Park Bistro and pronounced it delicious.

      Best cassoulet I've had is at Payard in the Upper East. Delish. A fantastic boullabaisse too.

        Thought I would reactivate this to see if anything has changed in the last year. The last in-depth thread about cassoulet was from 2003. Any good recommendations? Payard? Gascogne's? I'm willing to travel several hours for a really great one! I have been disappointed with the cassoulet offerings in Manhattan.

          Which cassoulets have disappointed you? For example, have you tried Gascogne's?
