    The portions are huge. Three of us shared a goat cheese tart an appetizer and a Tarte Tain for dessert. Both exceptional.

    Great BYO place (S-Th). Kassulet was seriously good but filling so if you plan on ordering, go easy on the bread (which is meh). Duck breast was excellent too and goat cheese tart and escargot were ++

    Kassulet is awesome. Duck confit, slab of bacon, pork sausage braised in duck fat. Truffle gnocchi is addicting.

    No longer BYOB :( Escargot and other entrees I ordered were not as good the last few times I been here. Quality seems to be falling off. Likely won't come back again.

    While this French bistro is no longer BYOB, they now take AmEx. Make a reservation in advance and bring your appetite, especially when tackling the Kassoulet.

    You must come with an appetite and eat the very rich Kassulet Toulousain De La Maison - a traditional provincial dish with cannelli beans cooked in bacon and foie jus and much more. Oh and it's BYOB!!

    Best time to dine is definitely after 9. Beat the crowd and enjoy the sweet ambiance of low lighting, some window seats, and a fantastic playlist. This place is a gem.

    Please, please order the curry mussels. The mussels are fresh and they're basked in this rich, cream, flavorful broth (almost a curry sauce). Other favs: beet salad, goat tart and profiteroles
