Cassoulet in Paris

I am looking to have some cassoulet whilst in Paris, whilst I know it is not a traditional Parisian dish, does anyone have any recommendations for places that have it? So far my searches haven't turned up much at all. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

  1. L'Assiette, rue du Château, in the 14th.
    L'Auberge Pyrénées-Cévennes, 11th.

    And of course

      At L'Assiette tonight based on this recommendation.
      The whole meal was stellar from the wine to the sardine entree to the excellent and praised cassoulet to the verveine souffle that was just perfect.
      Great service did not hurt and a full tour of small kitchen afterwards by David was lovely as well.
      Thanks Pti

      1. I was at le Relais de la Gastronomie, 34 rue Montmartre and the cassoulet was quite tasty. The place is adjacent to their grocery store which sells saucissons, ducks, fresh foie gras so you know that their ingredients are fresh. Their cassoulet is flavorful of the game taste of the duck. I remember the dish was only about 10 -15 Euros. The Paris Brest dessert is also marvelous.

          The cassoulet is good because it's good canned cassoulet. My favorite over many "house made" versions, since canning develops the taste of cassoulet tremendously. I didn't know they served cassoulet, that's a good thing to know. Thanks.

          1. Thank you for all the suggestions, we ended up going to J'Go in Saint Germain, as L'Assiette was fully booked. I have never had cassoulet before, and I thought it was good. I was completely stuffed by the end of the meal though and had to just about roll home.

              I heard J'Go's cassoulet was not bad indeed.

                I have had very good duck heart at the J'go in the 9th, comparable to the duck heart at Dans Les Landes. But the atmosphere is too chaotic, about 20 times more animated than Saturday night at The Restaurant That Dare Not Speak Its Name, 10 times more animated than the pintxos bars in the Parte Vieja of San Sebastian. C'est dire.

                  I saw some people eating those duck hearts and they looked good - I'd never had duck heart til dinner at Bones the week before, they are delicious . We sat outside so it wasn't too bad, although it was absolutely rammed inside.

                  1. re: ralphthecat

                    Bones' duck hearts are miraculous. Like meat flowers.
                    J'Go's wine list has a very good reputation. I should try it at last.

                    Ah go ahead; once a month is allowed/encouraged lest we forget.

                      Bowing in gratitude. OK, it's on rue Malar, called Chez l'Ami Oscar Wilde.
