“The bane of my existence is that I cannot find a restaurant in D.C. that serves escargots as the French make them: in butter and shells. I have found restaurants in Washington that serve escargots, but they don’t do it right. They put their own tilt on it. I would have a favorite restaurant if there were more restaurants that did escargots the way the French do it. Every time I look and they don’t have escargots, I’m crestfallen.”—-D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, giving her critique to WaPo critic Tom Sietsema in his Fall Dining Guide
