Part of it is the influx of bistros and Belgian foods to DC, but frog legs seem to be appearing more and more frequently on area menus. Whether they're a traditional French preparation, or a slightly stranger take (buffalo frog legs, anyone?), here's where DC customers can decide for themselves whether frog legs really do "taste like chicken." Our Frog Leg Heat Map is focused on new, newish and upcoming restaurants, but Vietnamese restaurants like Viet Bistro in Eden Center, and bistros with staying power like Central in Penn Quarter are also worth visiting for the dish.
