I must begin by expressing my apologies to the frogs… this isn’t some racially derisive comment – I mean the half a dozen or so frogs who gave their lives so that I could eat their wonderfully tasty legs. Thank you my little green friends. Chez Napoleon is worth visiting just for this one dish (Cuisses De Grenouilles). It is also worth visiting for the Filthy Martini (crushed green olive vodka martini). And it is also worth visiting just for old-world feel. And then there is the soufflé - but this list is getting long and silly. We were actually steered away from this venue by a concierge, who instead provided a list of more modern French restaurants. I am really glad we ignored his advice, as this was one of the best meals on our US trip. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food is exquisite and it is very, very hard to leave. Being complete pigs, we ordered the Foie Gras /and/ the duck pate – both were good but the Foie Gras was particularly luscious. As previously noted, several frogs died for a good cause for my main course, and my partner had the veal (Veau Forestiere). Finally, a pre-ordered chocolate soufflé and a Peche Melba – I cannot describe how good this was – words fail me. If you like quiet, home-style French restaurants, you cannot go past Chez Napoleon.
