Cassoulet at Opaline

Last night, pre-movie, went to Opaline to try their cassoulet. It was a stripped-down version, with duck confit and blood sausage, but was delicious; apparently they rotate the meats from week to week. I finished every bean, and the waiter pointed out it was all-you-can-eat and I could have more. A friend and I shared an "endive salad" that as far as we could see lacked endive but was mesclun and celery heart (?) in a light dressing flavored with chestnut bits; wonderful. We also had a carafe of rawish southern rhone wine that was recommended to accompany the cassoulet, the perfect choice, and for dessert we split a muffin-like hazelnut cake with caramel frosting and (I think) coffee ice cream. The bill, for all this plus an additional glass of muscadet, came to $36 a person, not including tip. The service was friendly--my friend thought they asked too many times if everything was alright--, and the room commodious. I would definitely go back.
