I have to admit that I had never tasted frog legs and so, was somewhat apprehensive, yet excited, when this restaurant was chosen for a friends dinner get together. I also figured that there would be other items on the menu.

It was a leaping-good time and fun evening with new discoveries in food, friends, and comraderie!
