The first time I went to Blue Ribbon Brasserie, I sat next to John Mayer at 2 in the morning and ate bone marrow while listening in on his conversation (unsuccessfully). On this visit, I went for a late night meal and ended up sitting next to no one because the restaurant was empty (maybe because it was past 11 on a weeknight?) I was in the mood for French bistro food and as soon as I saw escargot on the menu, my heart skipped a beat. I love the garlic and parsley mixture and dipping the bread into the small divots of the escargot plate and was very excited to do this so late into the evening, but the waiter told me that the escargot was prepared differently at Blue Ribbon; instead of the garlic, olive oil and parsley mixture, it’s a bourguignon preparation and stewed with red wine, bacon, mushrooms, carrots, and bread:


The dish was on the sweet side; it tasted like lots of brown sugar was also added to this dish and turned me off completely. I couldn’t finish the snails because it was so rich and sweet – almost like dessert!

We went with a staple, the Blue Ribbon fried chicken:


The fried chicken is served alongside collared greens and mashed potatoes – the ultimate comfort food. It doesn’t compare to the fried chicken we had at Blue Ribbon Brasserie on Urbanspoon
