Any suggestions of where I should go for cassoulet in Paris?
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..
