Do you create unique foods?

I am going to Paris next week and I would like to have a dinner in a great restaurant serving all the good stuff like Cassoulet, confit de canard, foie gras etc in other words Sud Quest Cuisine at it's best. Some years back I tried Sud Quest Monceau and liked it but I know there have to be better ones out there.
I really appreciate your help.

    Sorry if this is a bit off topic - but what's Sud Quest? I thought it was sud ouest ... am I missing something?

      You guessed right. It's just a typo in the original post.

      Best cassoulet I know is l'Auberge du Quincy, av. Ledru-Rollin, in the 6th.

      I'm not sure there's much better than SO Monceau in town, actually. SO restaurants are consistently disapointing in Paris. The really good ones I knew closed. And SO Monceau is pretty nice.

        Thank you so much for your reply. I might just try both restaurants and make up my mind.
        Kind regards,

          Went to Monceau and were treated like royals. Great food Pate de Canard, White aspergus, confit de canard, cassoulet and fresh strawberry. Service and ambience tops!
          Actually upon leaving we booked ourselves again the next evening...and it was just as good. The place has been updated to fire code which is great.
