Bistrot Massilia is a Yorba Linda restaurant that serves French food. It must be said that Massilia’s prices aren't exorbitant, but they're not cheap either. There are $30 bottles of wine, but you could just as easily spend as much as six times on other bottles, including a $174 Chateau Leoville Poyferre that's described as having scents of sweet soil with herbs. As such, you shouldn't go with a monetary budget or even a caloric one in mind. At the very least, you need to allow yourself to sponge up every drop of the melted butter the escargot came swimming in. The half-dozen snails--dark, chewy, shriveled-up morsels tasting as though they were revived from frozen--are the best excuses to do so. And when you do, you try not to think about how you've just eaten the equivalent of one whole stick of butter as though it were soup.
