It's time for "Where to find the best cassoulet?" question.
The last good one that I had, and that was sometime very early this year, was at Brasserie LCB.
I'm looking for suggestions on any other good place where I can order one of my favorite dish.
Here's a local (Murray Hill) rundown
Park Bistro - all around solid version.
Artisanal - fantastic but WAY TOO garlicky. You will need to brush your teeth for about 3 hours before it gets off your breath. If you are a garlic lover (and more importantly, so is the company you keep), than I can't think of a better version.
Cosette - Okay. Could've been a lot better. It was too watery for my liking, which is too bad, because a better version would see me return (haven't been back since last year) and the cozy space + cassoulet + a cold, snowy day (if we ever get one) would be terrific.
There is a small bistro on the upper reaches of East Midtown called Cafe Joul - I really like their cassoulet, but I think everyone has different cassoulet preferences.
Cafe Joul is on 1st avenue between 58th and 59th. Right next to Aja and around the corner from March. I think it is always on their winter menu, but it may have just been a special last time I had it. I don't remember.
