A restaurant where snails are flambéed in pastis is our kind restaurant. Especially when there’s a crystal chandelier involved as well. L’Escargot is Soho’s oldest French institution, and it’s the closest quick and easy gets in this part of town, while still being 100% Soho. It’s a classic place with lots of velvet drapes, and lots of butter. Dinner feels formal, but it makes for a classy but still casual lunch, especially when there are buffet and prix fixe options available. The pastis is optional. But, at the same time, it isn’t, if you know what we mean.
