Escargots. The following dish probably falls in the category of “something you wouldn’t eat anywhere else” especially if you are from the US. Escargot or snails is a delicacy that was always popular in France. In fact, this is a delicacy that is very popular in many European countries, especially the Mediterranean ones.
Escargots au Beurre Persillé is a typical French recipe of cooked snails in a butter parsley cream, they are presented in their shells and you eat them with a little skewer. If you are to try this dish (and you should since it is such a French thing to do) you better do it in style. According to the website of www.parisinfo.com the L’Escargot Montorgueil Restaurant is the perfect choice for that.
“Two centuries of snails are worth celebrating. The establishment that has been serving this particular Parisian dish for 200 years and has been declared a listed heritage site. And with good reason! The restaurant has retained its authentic Second Empire decor and the gastronomic and traditional cuisine served here is rarely equaled: Crispy ceps and home-reared pork, brioche of quail from the Dombes flavored with foie gras or the famous 12 Burgundy snails in spirals of three flavors … An institution in the center of Paris.” Description by www.parisinfo.com
