Wondering where to find a good escargot appetizer. Any advice?
I haven't tried it, but have heard good things about the escargot at Mon Ami Gabi.
I have also seen it on the menu at Bouchon in Venetian.
Le Cirque was the best I've had. I recently saw it offered at Bardot Brasserie, but I opted for the duck over the snails.
Heritage at the Mirage has a nice soup with charred onions and escargot
The Bardot version is wonderful but not a traditional in that they are done in a light pastry puff with toasted Hazelnuts and Chartreuse garlic butter,
Thanks, all. I'm looking for a yummy garlic buttery sauce. May try Mon Ami Gabi!
Hugo's Cellar in the Four Queens has Escargot in a delightful garlic butter sauce.
Awesome! Been wanting to try them also. Thanks.
I was not thrilled with the escargot at Hugo's Cellar. They do prepare them in the proper dish with a garlic butter sauce but rather than serving them with the proper toast points they put a pastry dough over each escargot. Sounds good, but when you put the dough on the escargot it becomes ultra greasy and doesn't rise properly. Just a chewy greasy thing. There's a reason the French serve it with just plain toast points.
