Its that time of year again! Any suggestions?

  1. Gascogne serves an excellent cassoulet. No surprise because it specializes in the cuisine of that eponymous region in France where cassoulet is a major dish.

    Cosette serves a less traditional version (a bit more soupy), but one that is still quite tasty.

    1. Gascogne is where I first fell in love... with cassoulet! Thanks for Cosette, its close to work so I'll check it out soon.

        Hey, Engineer, If you want to check out another place in that vicinity that serves a very good cassoulet, go to Park Bistro, on Park Av S., b/t 28th & 29th. Even during the season, they may have it only as a special, so it's best to call and check. Tel.: 212-689-1360.

      2. 26 Seats sometimes has it. good and cheap, I think I recall Provence has a good one too but I'm not sure. Les Halles definitely got it and also Lucien in EV that I used to like alot.

        1. I'm quite partial to the cassoulet at Le Gigot on Cornelia Street. I don't know that it's on their regular menu, so it might be wise to call ahead. It's a wonderful restaurant -- some say "cramped," I say "cozy." Lovely.
