Frog's legs?

I just realized that I've never had them, a situation which must be remedied. Anybody have a suggestion for where in the GTA I should go to try them? A restaurant would be preferable since I wouldn't know how to prepare them myself.

  1. I feel a bit over the top on this, but really I'm in love with the new place - Forte and they have frog legs! They are done in panko and SOOOO yummy! Not at all greasy.

      Went on Saturday. Not only were the frogs legs good but we had a great meal all around. Thanks for the rec JennaBean!

        graydyn, May I ask what you had at Forte? I will be going there on Wednesday after work so I would like to know what's good. And how's the atmosphere?

          I had the pot-au-feu, my SO had the rabbit. I would definitely recommend the pot-au-feu if your a big meat eater. It's a big serving of beef rib, with ox-tail stuffed into a bone on the side, and slices of bone marrow all over the whole thing. The rabbit was served in a heavily seasoned cream sauce, which IMO defeats the point of eating rabbit, but it still tasted great. Both dishes were very rich, fatty, and salty - delicious but not exactly health-food.
          Unfortunately the atmosphere is all 'trendy'. Loud music, lots of goofy stuff on the walls (tuning forks?), a lot of the colour brown. Not my cup-of-tea but I know a lot of people like that sort of thing.

            Awesome, thanks for your comment. I will give it a shot and report back. Likely we will stick with the lounge menu for that evening, but who knows, we may go nuts. It's right by my work anyway so in one way or another, I will try their main courses. Looking forward to it!

              Hey it's a good place to go nuts. I failed to mention in my last post, but we got two apps and two mains and the bill was still less than $80. If I remember correctly the only expensive item on the menu is the tenderloin.

        First place I thought when I saw this thread was Foxley! :-)

          Ohhh I haven't had them there! How are they prepared???

          1. re: JennaBean

            Sorry for the late-ish reply, JennaBean! If my memory serves me correctly, the ones I had were lightly battered and served with a sauce that had a spicy kick. I do remember that they were very moist/juicy and delicious!

          2. I noticed them on the menu at Loire although it doesn't seem to appear on the online menu.

            1. Only had the once and really liked them - would have again. Had them at Auberge du Pommier at York Mills and Yonge Street.

              1. Hey? Are you guys talking about me?
                My legs?
                I taste like chicken!

                I am available at Auberge du Pommier and Le Select.
                Pretty good too.
                Ha Ha LOL!
