Best Cassoulet close to Carcassone

We are looking for the best cassoulet within ~30 minutes of Carcassone. We have looked at the cassoulet at Hôtel du Centre in Castelnaudary, Comte Roger in Carcassone and Le Languedoc in Carcassone. I would love to hear opinions on these places, or if there are others we should consider.

Thanks

South of France Itinerary Restaurant Recommendations

Thanks for the recommendation of Bistrot D'Antoine. Have you tried their other restaurant Le Comptoir du Marché?

Thanks for the recommendation of Bacon over the others. In my search for bouillabaisse I've seen a couple people mention bourride. It sounds like that is another Provence dish we should try.

Thanks for the recommendations.

We definitely want to try bouillabaisse. Would you recommend Bacon over the following 3 places we were also considering: Tetou (I can't tell if this place is popular just because celebrities eat there or is the bouillabaisse the best), L’Ane Rouge in Nice, Le Petit Nice for the bouillabaisse menu. Others have mentioned Chez Gilbert in Cassis and Chez Fonfon in Marseille. If there are others we should look please let me know.

South of France Itinerary Restaurant Recommendations

I realize that it this is a large area and we are visiting a lot of cities. I've spent several days reading blogs and Chowhound posts. Pictures are helpful in making some decisions, but I was hoping people would respond with a few recommendations for places that serve excellent food and would be considered a must visit, especially if I did not list any restrictions.

We've already booked Michel Bras, Le Louis XV & Mirazur. When I travel I like a mix of high-end and causal food. The high-end restaurants are easier to make a decision on. I am having a more difficult time determining the bistros and excellent casual places (there are some popular Michelin 1/2* and a few family places). I cannot tell which of those are the best in terms of food. I really enjoyed chez L'Ami Jean when I was in Paris. Could you give a few bistro and casual recommendations?

Dallas Steakhouse Recommendations

My boyfriend and I are visiting Dallas over the Thanksgiving holiday. We are looking for recommendations on the best steakhouse in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. We'll have a rental car so transportation is not an issue and we don't mind driving for a great steak. While good side dishes are a plus, we really want to know who has the "best steak".

Thanks!

Scarpetta, Convivio or Del Posto for Pasta

Thanks again for all the responses; we might end up trying two places. I read Sam Sifton's review of Marea. I'll start looking at the Chowhound reviews.

Scarpetta, Convivio or Del Posto for Pasta

Thanks for the responses. Del Posto is definitely off the list. We were originally leaning towards Convivio, but we read some excellent things on Chowhound about Scarpetta. We looked at their menu and they have several great pasta dishes. While Scarpetta is good, it sounds like Convivio is the better choice for pasta.

Scarpetta, Convivio or Del Posto for Pasta

We are visiting NYC over the holidays and can't decide between Scarpetta, Convivio or Del Posto. We love pasta and would like recommendations on which of these three is the best for pasta dishes. We've been to Babbo and Lupa and enjoyed both. Thanks!

The Art of Eating, Fine Cooking or Saveur

I want to get a friend a subscription to a food magazine. He loves travel, dinning out and cooking. He is particularly fond of Molecular Gastronomy.

I am debating between The Art of Eating, Saveur or Fine Cooking. Any recommendations on which of these three would be the best, or are there others I should consider?
