Save the Last Shrimp for Me

Well, what could be better than a sensory overwhelming experience of bacon backed by The Drifters singing some R&B? We’re not sure, but we know what’s happening as we cruise to the end of the week. Here’s what we’ve got cooking at week’s end: Our bacon chicken ranch salad and shrimp étouffée.

What We’re Cooking for You at Week’s End

 Thursday, October 20

Grilled chicken bacon ranch salad. We’ll highlight a flavorful twist on our popular grilled chicken salad: have it with our house-made ranch and bacon or our spicy chipotle ranch and bacon. Chef Alexandra Guaranschelli suggests, “I think we love bacon because it has all the qualities of an amazing sensory experience. When we cook it, the sizzling sound is so appetizing, the aroma is maddening, the crunch of the texture is so gratifying and the taste delivers every time.” Well, that’s over-talking it, but okay — she’s right, bacon overwhelms the senses. Come get overwhelmed with us, we’d love to see you.

Shrimptastic Friday: Shrimp étouffée with rice ($15). Shrimp lovingly cooked with the tasty trinity veggies, a light roux, and delectable Cajun spices in a delicious sauce served over Louisiana rice will make you boogie up and down the street. Once destined for the B side of a record (if folks still remember what that means), our old fried Dick Clark realized the B side for the better song: “Save the Last Dance for Me.” Well, in October 1960, The Drifters, led by frontman Ben E. King, topped the charts with that lovely tune reminding that special someone of one of those eternal truths we know well: “Dance with the one who brought you.” Yep. What folks don’t know is that Ben E. King loved shrimp, and every once in a while, he’d sneak a lyric: “But don’t forget who’s takin’ you home, and in whose arms you’re gonna be. So darlin’ save the last shrimp for me.” There it is, R&B history and the love of shrimp. Come join us this Friday, The Drifters will be singing….

Famous Quotes

Paula Deen laughs, “Onions and bacon cooking up just makes your kitchen smell so good. In fact, one day I’m going to come up with a room deodorizer that smells like bacon and onions. It’s a fabulous smell.” We don’t want a room deodorizer, we want a woodwick candle that smells of lovely bacon and onions and has the sizzle of the pan. Yep.
