I ordered the following from Chez Clement in Paris:

 

Cocotte de lapin français en Gibelotte, purée "Maison" au beurre.

 

lapin= rabitt, purée = some kind of mashed "onion" (?), beurre= butter

ok,

but what do they mean by:

 

a) Cocotte

 

b) Gibelotte

 

What I got was a rabitt stew served in a ceramic pot, it tasted very good!

 

PS

What kind of wine, would you prefer to this dish?
