WoW. In general, this isnt the type of place I would normally go. Its just comes across as a little too precious. However, I was assured that I would be doing myself a terrible injustice if I didnt try their breakfast, and with my wifes parents in tow I figured there was no better time to give them a spin. The Huevos Rancheros and the Shrimp & Grits seem to be THE things to get, so I went with the latter, as did my father in law. Wifey went with one of their Specials; a Black Pepper Biscuit, Heirloom Tomato, Pimiento Cheese Napoleon garnished with Sugar Bacon. Her mama had a Black Bean Tostada. Of course when in the south you drink Sweet Tea. This was to be no exception and theirs was certainly up to snuff. Anyhow, everything showed up around the same time and I immediately knew that I was in for a rare treat. You have never had grits like these before my friends. Cheesy and creamy with chipotle in a white wine Dijon cream sauce, topped with crisp bacon?! Oh yeah, and the shrimp, perfectly cooked, in there soaking up the sauce like it knows what I know. This dish blew my mind. Next to me, my wife mentioned that she wished the tomatoes were sliced a little thicker but had no complaints otherwise. Her parents are a hard read but they seemed to be happy. It neednt matter, as I was lost in a daydream about living in a world where we could all sit around and eat Shrimp & Grits under an air conditioned sun as mermaids swam by, spiking the refills of my Sweet Tea with vodka.... And that is where I shall linger, until we can return.
Grade: A (well worth the half hour wait. and you will NEVER hear me say that, because I simply dont do it.)
