Cassoulet is not a Desert
Well, I forgot to take a picture of the Cassoulet. I guess I was momentarily blinded by it's exotic beauty. A pot of beans and ducky and porky sausages and meats in a clove scented sauce. The restaurant, Capsouto Frere (http://www.capsoutofreres.com) in Tribeca was so elegant, without being stuffy. Meaning waiters who were always there when you wanted something but didn't ask you how you like the food just after you had stuffed food in your mouth. And tables just far enough so you don't feel crowded. Wood paneling and a cute French guy who owned the place. Cute in the Lifetime movie sense, if you know what I mean.
