Standing outside Le Fou Frog, you wouldn’t think much of the nondescript little building standing in the practically deserted area east of the River Market. But step inside, and you’re whisked away to the charming, dimly lighted French café of your imagination. Le Fou Frog specializes in traditional French dishes such as foie gras and frog legs, as well as more adventurous cuisine such as ostrich and kangaroo. But if you’re looking to forgo a pricey Parisian meal and enjoy savories and spirits on the cheap, hit up the Frog during the popular Thursday and Friday happy hours. From 4 to 7 p.m., the cozy, intimate bar fills with lively, friendly types looking to take advantage of the Frog’s très généreux deals on succulent appetizers, European beers, wines and even champagne.

Restaurant Details

It’s always the louche life at this popular French bistro in the historic north end. It has all the sexy French components: an attractive staff, a dim and sultry dining room, and moments of dramatic tension — Marseilles-born chef and owner Mano Rafael is notorious for banning customers who annoy him. The food is delicious, and the vast menu selections — there are often as many as 20 nightly specials — are all tempting. It’s a perfect place for a lingering seduction or, if you’re beyond that, a hearty bowl of bouillabaisse. — Charles Ferruzza
