My friend and I have a tradition of celebrating each other's birthdays at La Grenouille. Granted we are ususually the youngest people dining (except for the occasional mistress) but we like the old school charm, gracious service and beautiful floral arrangements. You can imagine our disappointment when they refused to wrap up 1/2 of the fully cooked $65 Dover sole that I could not finish. We were incredulous. They said they "had nothing to put it in" but if I had ordered meat they would have been able to accomodate. We went all the way up to the manager but he would not budge. How ridiculous. As if cooked fish were more "dangerous" than rare filet mignon. The experience left us feeling depressed and wasteful and, frankly, taken. Issac Mizrahi may have been at the next table, but next year we are going to Le Bernadin. Au revoir Froggie.
