Bugs on menu?
Hi! I'm new to Chowhound and trying to find out if there are any restaurants that have bugs/insects on the menu. Like some Mexican joints that serve deep fried grasshoppers or escamoles? or other interesting bizarre eats? Thanks!
There's a sushi bar in San Dimas called Little Tokyo that serves grasshoppers.
Laurent Quenioux served a dish with ant eggs at his previous restaurant, don't know if he ever does at Bistro LQ or not.

Be careful when bandying about critical classifiers like "bizarre" when referring to food-- remember, one person's "bizarre eats" is another person's lunch. For example, my Taiwanese mother-in-law finds the flavor of bleu cheese offensive, yet she loves eating tofu that has been marinated in a months-old rotting shrimp and vegetable brine.
Chapulines are commonly found on Oaxacan menus, including Guelaguetza.
