#4: Cassoulet at Brasserie by Niche

The classic white-bean stew is served with pork (belly on my visit, shoulder more recently), a confit of duck leg and a garlicky pork sausage. The beans are the ideal texture, firm to the first bite but ultimately yielding. Each meat adds a distinct note -- luscious meat, salty duck, lightly peppery sausage -- and combine to make the Platonic ideal of hearty fare.
