Curl up with a bowl of one of the world's most comforting dishes. The 15th annual Cassoulet Night at Lucques returns, once again paying tribute to the traditional dish with roots in Southern French cooking. Chef Suzanne Goin, Caroline Styne and chef de cuisine Mercedes Rojas will prepare a three-course menu that features a salad of young greens with local walnuts and orange blossom honey, and a gâteau Basque with prune ice cream and almonds. But the star of the night will of course be the Cassoulet de Maison, with duck and pork confit, garlic sausage and white beans. Try to resist the urge to catch the next flight to France after you've had your fill. Can't stay for dinner, or want to get some to-go (ideally to eat on your flight to France)? There's a $38 to-go option, which gets you a single, ready-to-heat serving of the cassoulet. Call 323-655-6277 to reserve your space or to-go order.
