DOWNTOWN Cafe Campagne's signature cold weather dish, the cassoulet (with white bean, bacon and tomato base with pork shoulder, duck confit, garlic sausage and lamb), returns tonight at dinner. After tonight, it will be available every service (brunch, lunch and dinner) after that as well as the to-go program, where Campagne packages up an almost-done cassoulet for you to finish off at home.
