Shanghai's popular Blue Frog Bar & Grill chain has made the leap outside mainland China with a new eatery at the Venetian Macao (above left). It features dishes (and portion sizes) inspired by traditional American fare. Chefs cooking at the 'on stage theatre kitchen' - an open grill in the middle of the restaurant floor - will make dishes such as spicy chicken wings (above right; HK$68 for 10, HK$128 for 20), nachos (HK$98), Caesar salad (top right; HK$80) and firecracker pasta (penne with cheddar cheese, kidney beans, spicy salsa and Cajun chicken; HK$98). An Italian espresso bar serves fresh pastries during the day and wine and dessert in the evening. Blue Frog Bar & Grill is at shop 1037, Grand Canal Shoppes, The Venetian Macao, Cotai, Macau, tel: 853 2882 8281.
