The Frog and the Peach, 29 Dennis Street, New Brunswick, is offering a large format dinner for 8 to 16 people, which will be available every day except Saturday, with a 5:30 PM or 8 PM seating. This is how it works: Diners pick an animal (such as baby lamb, rib of beef, suckling pig or duck) that will be procured from a local farm, and executive chef/owner Bruce Lefebvre will create a seasonal three-course meal that will be served family style. Wine, beer or spirits can be paired with your dinner. A 25 percent deposit is requested at the time of reservation, which must be made least 7 days in advance. Phone: 732-846-3216.
