GRAND FORKS — She asked, “Where could we go for dinner?”

I suggested, “The Toasted Frog.”

My daughter, GH (Gail Hagerty) was in Grand Forks from Bismarck on business for a few days. Dinner out was my bonus.

This restaurant, which has always dared to be different, is located downtown on North Third Street. There is limited parking in an adjacent lot and parking places here and there on North Third. Usually nearby.

The menu includes a quinoa bowl ($16) with brown rice, red quinoa, served in a bed of spinach and topped with salsa cruda, avocado, lime wedge and fried flour tortilla strips. Entrees also include fish tacos, walleye piccata, pork tenderloin, salmon — as well as filet mignon, New York strip. And there is wood-fired pizza.
