It's cassoulet season, so i'm looking for a real french restaurant, along the lines of a Parisian Bistro or Brasserie. Not fancy stuff with an Asian twist, but classic French food--cassoulet, tarte tatin, steak frites, magret de canard. authentic is key. maybe a nice frisee aux lardons to start, then cassoulet, then tarte tatin, all washed down with a decent rose. does such a thing exist in LA? not too expensive, though that may be imnpossible. maybe maximillian's in the valley, or chez mimi, though chez mimi looked slightly pricier than what i was hoping for.
