      Still pushing for EGGS BENEDICT. So many variations out there and I want to hear about, and try, all of them.

              sweet breads weren't nominated.

              how many places serve frog legs? Can't get on board.

                Frog legs baffle me too. If they become the dish of the month, I look forward to many interesting posts. It's not something I see in my regular rotation.

                Maybe so, but rarely in depth. I think that this kind of thread should establish a baseline of quality, so that when we post about our "best" dishes, we can have a objective understanding of the things not just "the wings at shamrock's suck, or the sun rises and sets at d'spot"(not saying shamrocks sucks, just an example)
                Size
                Type of wing (whole/segment)
                Sauce
                exterior
                interior
                breading/no
                cooking method(baked/fried/grilled)

                Frog legs aren't "seasonal" until april most places that actually know there is a season for it, and usually underwhelm on the 3 or so occasions I have had them, always left with the thought, "why do frog legs, just to do frog legs?" I'd get more out of a thread like that, rather than just some good old horn tooting. Just my thoughts on the thing.

                  "But rarely in depth". So the have been talked about. Not much more to say. They are just chicken wings available in grocery store freezer cases. Frog Legs properly prepasired are amazing. Hell lets do canned chli....

                    FROG LEGS!

                    Yes, they ARE available in the Twin Cities. For example: 112 Eatery, Cavé Vin, Vincent (on occasion), Salut, Taste of Thailand II, Jensen's Supper Club, and - for a trip out of town - the Laurel Supper Club, New Richmond, WI. Just to name a few....
