We’re big fans of The Frog in Shoreditch (we rated it an 8.5), so it says a lot that we like their new location in Covent Garden even more. That’s due in part to the space itself: the Shoreditch location, set in a car park, has its charms but also feels slightly out of place, whereas the new, swankier spot has a real sense of occasion. And the food here also takes it up a notch: you’ll eat things like celeriac with truffle, or halibut with a super rich crab sauce and caviar, or a pot of razor clams that looks like it has a built-in nightclub smoke machine. Their five- or eight-course tasting menus do offer a real balance, but you can order a la carte as well. Things can get a little pricey if you’re matching your tasting menu with cocktails or wine but for something special, this place really is worth it.
