Paris in two weeks with my Italian chef husband

Yay, Josephine has cassoulet on the menu, good enough! That will kill three birds with one stone, since I am going for both the beef bourg. AND the duck confit..

My husband is at Vinitaly www.vinitaly.com/EN right now in Verona, winemakers from all over the world. Anyhoo, we are meeting in Paris this thursday. Turns out my hubby wants to eat cassoulet! Sorry but, What is a real cassoulet and where do we go to eat a good one??

Oh my gosh, I swear I started to choke up, she did a great job explaining that wonderful vibe that some very lucky establishments are handed to them from the food and dining Gods ;)

Wow, it looks like Rino is on the approval list of some highly esteemed chowhounds- and that reminds me, how IS Bistro Paul Bert lately, man, they are getting some flak from the tourists that for sure, the female server especially. There are so. Many wonderful suggestions on this board for bistros that I really want to cull the wheat from the chaff. Thanks a mil DCM!

Absolutely understood, we have Chez Denise for that! My husband makes amazing gnocchi, by the way, when done right they are small pillows of ethereal bliss that melt in the mouth like I can't explain, I'm not kidding..

No apologies needed, this is why Chowhound Paris is the best, it's like I am at a dinner party with the best mix of interesting people :)

Thank you so much Parigi, vietnamese is one of my favorite foods, and I can't wait to try it in Paris. And my husband loves sriracha sauce, that is so funny you should mention how to say spicy in French :)
Grazie mille!,

Oops, just to clarify, the restos I listed ARE italian, was thinking of trying one if any came highly recommended from a foodie point of view. Your itinerarylooks very similar to ours :) and yes Chez L'Ami Jean is on our list for sure! It would be awesome if Parigi or Parnassien, Soupie, etc. Could be there, and we will definitely be trying lots of french wine ;)

Hello Paris Chowhounders, any first hand knowledge of Rino, Il Vino, Ciasa Mia, Il Vicolo, Carpaccio?
My hubby thinks it's a waste to eat a single Italian meal in Paris, wants "real" Paris bistro food. He is in the school of local and eat every part of the animal school of eating. We are definitely doing chez josephine dumonet, but beyond that all the recs start blurring together... Merci beacoup, vous etes tres aimables tout le monde!

Paris Dinner Reviews - Chez L'Ami Jean, La Regalade, Les Cocottes des Constant, Pierre Gagnaire, Frenchie bar a vins

Thank you fatman, You have helped me make so many decisions with your paris report: yes to La regalade, l'ami jean, le cinq, and no to frenchie bar, pierre Gagnaire, and les cocottes. Will be there in two weeks and I can't wait to eat oysters all over Paris, starting with Le Cinq and Huitre Regis!
