When to Go: Plan your visit on a Sunday night, when The Frog and the Peach waives its usual $25 corkage fee for the BYOB crowd and discounts most selections on its massive wine list by a third.
What's in a Name? Though they're serious about their cuisine, the team behind The Frog and the Peach turned to comedy for their restaurant's name. British humor fans may recognize the moniker from Dudley Moore and Peter Cook's classic routine about a Scottish restaurant that only serves its two namesakes.
- The restaurant's dress code is "nice casual." That means most men wear jackets, and most ladies don secondhand wedding dresses.
- Walk-ins are welcome, but reservations are strongly encouraged—especially on Saturday night.
