La Gauloise Opens in West Village

By Rowena Tsai, Epoch Times

Foosball and frog legs, anyone? Restaurateur Georges Forgeois opens his seventh dining spot, La Gauloise, on March 11.

The menu will focus on French classics like Lapin à la Provençale, rabbit stewed in white wine and roasted tomatoes; Escargot with puff pastry; and Charlotte Russe, ladyfingers and Bavarian cream.

In spirit of the restaurant’s name, which evokes ancient France, the “Thighs of Nymph,” a more tasteful way of saying frog legs, pays tribute to renowned French chef Auguste Escoffier who coined the charming phrase.
