It's hard to resist snails cooked in their shells, bathed in garlic and parsley butter and served in a cast-iron dish with the sauce still hot and bubbling. And where better to enjoy this delicacy than a traditional brasserie? At A'Vert in West Hartford Center, escargot is part of the happy hour menu - so forget about nachos, sliders and buffalo wings. - Leeanne Griffin Price: $12 ($6 during happy hour), 35A Lasalle Rd., West Hartford. 860-904-6240, avertbrasserie.com.
