Plaza food is better but just make sure you conceal and carry when you are down there when it warms up. Jameeka is dropping her keedz off there soon to be babysat by private security. She needs to go get her fix.

Barbara Rafael owns Le Fou Frog in the River Market area. She’s closed the restaurant twice this year due to weather, and said the bistro’s finances have taken a hit.
