When it comes to dining, I have a few items that I always have to try if they’re on the menu: 1) Eggs Benedict, 2) Chai Tea, 3) Crab Cakes and 4) Tempura Ice Cream. God help me if they ever happen to show up on the same menu. I’ve written about brunch in the past, and now I’d like to feature one of my favorite dishes offered for dinner: Shrimp and Grits. An indisputable southern classic, and like most things, better with cheese. Drum roll, please.
And the winner is:
SOUTH CONGRESS CAFE
I admit, this was a close one. Ferre is an exceptional establishment in downtown Fort Worth that consistently delivers great food and service. However, what pushes South Congress Cafe over the edge is one component, the sweet and savory crawfish broth- it’s rich, yet light, and unbelievably good. Heads up, this dish is a featured special, and not always offered. When it shows up on the menu, I highly recommend trying it. You won’t be disappointed.
