Traditional with Boeuf Bourguignon is buttered noodles, and with Provencal Beef Daube, it's a macaroni gratin (without cheese, but with juices from the stew).

Polenta would never be a bad choice, either soft or cakes.

I was wondering also "what is a high-end beef stew"?

It depends a lot on whether the stew includes potatoes. If the stew is complex and rich, I like to serve it with simple side dishes that won't compete or leave everyone feeling stuffed. What else is in it besides beef and Cabernet?

Roast potatoes are always nice, or sauteed or steamed new potatoes. I've served a simple risotto Milanese with stews and things like lamb shanks. Baked yams are nice -- simple, not too rich. Glazed carrots or fresh peas can be good. Sometimes just some really good bread is the best choice of all.

I tend to leave potatoes out of stews and pot roasts as I don't prefer them cooked that way. I'd rather serve these dishes with mashed potatoes in some form or other.

See, I was trying to figure out what CABbage had to do with beef. Glad I asked. :)
