Bistrot La Minette isn’t the only area restaurant getting in on the National Escargot Day fun. On Wednesday, May 23rd Southwark will be joined by Doug “the Snailman” Dussault of Potironne Company. Doug will be on hand to talk snails while Southwark’s kitchen serves up four courses (including dessert) of snail inspired dishes. Dinner is $45 per person, $65 with wine or beer pairing.
