l’Escargot Montorgueil in Paris is a beautiful late 19th century snail restaurant all about snails, with its huge golden snail sign landmark. It has been serving its patrons for 200 years and has been declared a heritage site for retaining its authentic Second Empire decor
This is the small outdoor seating area we first chose for our dinner. It was very pretty with the evening light and quite romantic too. however, the traffic noise took over so we moved in indoors.
Three Marrow bones served with country bread, sea salt and a light salad….
My main course…
l’Escargot ! The grand finalé to one of our best meals in Paris 🙂 A portion of Escargots the traditional way, with butter and garlic and A portion of Escargots with Foie Gras! AH! That was the pièce de résistance!
Oh! And of course, Dessert 😉 Crème a lovely Brûlée
What a lovely evening it was. Great food, beautiful ambience, The service was very friendly and top notch! And, there really is nothing I can say about the escargot. You have to taste them to believe them, so, if in Paris, this has got to be on your list!
