Food.Fun.Stuff: Sou’Wester Opens

[ 0 ] September 15, 2009 |

Sou’Wester opened yesterday with Executive Chef Eric Ziebold and Chef de Cuisine Rachael Harriman headlining the show. Chef’s Ziebold and Harriman have extensive resumes that include Per Se in NYC and French Laundry in Yountville, California. We’re loving the menu options: Chicken and Dumplings and Sauteed Perch w/ Old Bay Chowder just to name a couple. During lunch hours, patrons can look forward to the house speciality, the Fried Chicken Sandwich served with housemade piccalilli for $9. For the sweets lovers, Pastry Chef Amanda Cook has re-created some old treats with a new twist, Fried Apple Pie and a homey Carrot Cake. Drinks on Me: A Bronx Tale looks like a winner with Aviation Gin, Dolin Blanc, Grand Marnier and housemade Rhubarb-Orange Syrup designed by Captain Sommelier, Carlton McCoy.

We’re creating a list of things that we must try on our visit:

Starter: Poached Egg with Creamed Grits & Sweetbreads ($12)- You know how we feel about poached eggs…gotta have ’em!

Entree: Blackened Bluefish with Cajun Rice ($18)- Curious about this fish…

Dessert: Fried Apple Pie- Interested to see how this apple pie is constructed and presented…

Drinks on Me: *side eye* We’ll figure this out when we get there…it could be a wine night or a night that needs something extra strong…
