Oldie but a Goodie
October 8, 2013
Advertised as having “the charm and elegance of a turn-of-the-century bar with turn-of-the millennium quality and service,” The Peerless Saloon & Grille is serving up specialties for Restaurant Week.
•$30 Dinner: Oyster Shooter, 13 oz Bone-in Cowgirl Rib-eye, & Red Velvet Cheesecake
•$15 Lunch: Fried Green Tomato Shrimp Stacker & Chocolate Bread Pudding
•Kids eat free from kids menu with an adult entrée purchase.
Since it’s also the dish they entered in the Taste of Calhoun County, I branched out of my norm sandwich and sweet potato fries and decided to try the Fried Green Tomato Shrimp Stacker.
I love their pita chips, so the inclusion of that alone made me excited.
The layer of lightly, cornmeal batter, fried on the tomatoes, hinted at a homemade recipe, like that of my grandmother’s. Lightly seasoned steamed shrimp and generous portions of fried tomatoes were topped with a lightly seasoned butter gravy, with chopped red peppers and chives stirred in. To top off the special, the Peerless served up a chocolate bread pudding, which reminds on of a gooey chocolate covered donut.
Try it for yourself, and see what you think!
