On our most recent visit to one of Grand Rapids' newest gastro pubs TMGR was generously offered the opportunity to sample The Winchester's signature frog legs with mango mustard sauce (good sauce but in our humble opinion it could have used a tad more gourmet Dijon mustard). It was prepared well with a light batter encasing tender succulent frog leg and thigh. The frog legs were said to have come from "Smyrna." We washed it down with one of Northern Michigan's finest hand-crafted brews, a pint of Short's Brewing Company (Bellaire MI) Bellaire Brown. Add a non-smoking atmosphere, throw in a Red Wings shut-out victory and there is practically no way to go wrong. Make it your first stop on the next Red Wings playoff game night. The Winchester is located at 648 Wealthy St SE.
