As the name would suggest, The Toasted Frog serves an abundance of eclectic mains and adventurous appetizers. Tuck into a delicious plate of lightly breaded frog legs or go for the safer (but equally yummy) roasted pork belly with blueberry compote. Famed also for their martinis, the drinks list is almost endless. Stick to the amphibious theme and order the hibernating frog or go for an after dinner banana cream pie martini. Tables at the Toasted Frog fill up fast so to avoid disappointment diners should call ahead to reserve a spot.
