Any suggestions of where I should go for cassoulet in Paris?
I will be in Paris in January.
Hoping to find some nice country french cafes. Love to eat cassoulet.
Any suggestions for other nice eating experiences? - not the touristy over-prices places.
Also current favorite french bakeries?
I did search the discussion list for cassoulet and many of the disscussions were not within the last year. I was hoping for a more recent discussion or suggestions for the cassoulet.
For cassoulet off the tourist trail:
Auberge Pyrénées-Cévennes on the rue Folie-Méricourt @ rue Faubourg du Temple in the 11th... closed Sun... cassoulet for under 25 €, full meal 40 to 50 €... clientèle is mostly 55+ but neighbourhood is the domain of the under 35s.
Le Gastroquet on rue Desnouettes @ rue Vaugirard... closed Sat + Sun... an old-fashioned bistro du quartier deep in the bowels of the 15th/ not very exciting residential neighbourhood... but great cassoulet for about 30 €.
BTW, cassoulet is not very popular in Paris but does remain a standard in some restaurants that specialize in south-western regional cuisine.
Bakeries/ boulangeries/ pâtisseries a favorite topic on this board. Lots of suggestions if you do a search..
L'Assiette, rue du Château.
Le Languedoc, boulevard de Port-Royal.
Cassoulet is not a dish that just appears on a menu. If it's there, it's been there for a long time and will stay. So discussions from last year should be still valid.
