Waypoint Public Cassoulet

Fake Name Dec 15, 2013 01:24 PM

Got shut out of Urban Solace last night, so trotted down to Waypoint for the elsewhere-touted Cassoulet.

Started with Fried Green Tomatoes, then on to their Little Gem salad- both quite good.

The Cassoulet has all the traditional ingredients, but has a more contemporary feel. A little on the "watery" side, but I don't mean that pejoratively. It was just not overbaked into a gooey mass. Flavors excllent, with a particularly good sear on the pork belly, an ingredient on which I'm not always keen. Very flavorful sausage. Duck confit was really just a duck drumstick, and I when considering the duck drumstick, I thought the pork belly was pretty good.

Accompanied by a pint of Allagash Saison, which may qualify as a fetish beer. But since I didn't get overly excited about it, I didn't strut about its peralge, nor did I wear a beanie nor ride my fixie to the place, I didn't slide into Hipster.

Overall, we enjoyed our meals.

    It was, however, VERY LOUD.

      Just asking, was the cassoulet Berlin level good? (Kidding, ya all).

      We do not like excessive noise - could I get the dinner to go?

        Dunno. We both left thinking how much more we would have enjoyed the meal if we could have shared each other's company without SHOUTING across the table. Our most-often used word was:


        As much as I enjoyed the food and the friendly, helpful service, we simply won't be back.

            Did you upgrade to the four-pronged cane?

            Last I saw you, you were thinking you were all that with the Ed Hardy limited edition three pronger.

            Moving on up..Weezie?
