Le Bec-Fin’s Festival Of Snails

Over at Le Bec-Fin, we’ve received word of two specialty menus that will be available during May.

First, a special corn-oriented menu will be available from April 30 until May 4 to take advantage of the new crop. The $45 p/p, four-course prix-fie will include dishes like a hot corn soup with pickled baby corn appetizer and an entree of sauteed striped bass with crispy polenta and asparagus.

But what we’re interested in is the $80 prix-fie on National Escargot Day aka May 24. The menu in full is available from Le Bec-Fin. Here are just a few highlights:

• Escargot en brioche• Grilled snails flavored with vanilla accompanied by jus de poulet au Mace• Roasted grouper, snail Bolognese, arugula emulsion
