I recently attended a Ladies Luncheon at Tavern & Table on Shem Creek and we had so much fun, that I was inspired to share our favorite menu items!
MUST HAVE APPS!
FIRE ROASTED OYSTERS: In a word? Obsessed! A burst of robust flavor comes from a unique combination of sesame seeds, spinach and ginger aioli, making this our number 1 pick of must try items!
LOBSTER & CREAM CHEESE WONTONS: A generous amount of lobster and cream cheese wrapped in a light, crisp wonton that are “melt-in-your mouth” delicious. Accented with red pepper jelly, yum!
SHRIMP BEIGNETS: Served with remoulade. They are crispy, flavorful and delicious! Perfect for sharing.
EXPERIENCE THE DAILY!
DAILY TOAST: We sampled many drinks, and our favorites were the STRAWBERRY BLONDE (Prosecco, Vodka, Elderflower and in-house strawberry puree) and the GRAPEFRUIT ROSEMARY COLLINS. And did you know they make their own MOONSHINE? Try their Daily Toast for a totally refreshing seasonal cocktail option!
DAILY BREAD: We enjoyed the CARMALIZED ONION & POTATO FLATBREAD WITH TRUFFLE CREAM, and although this was a daily special, T&T’s BRICK OVEN FLATBREADS come in variety of delicious combinations and can be enjoyed by all ages. I’ll definitely will be sampling another one on my next visit.
DAILY GRIND: It’s different every day, from lamb burgers to meatball marinara. Their in-house grind is a mix of certified Angus chuck, brisket and short rib!
“BURNT END” MAC & CHEESE: We agreed that this was tied for number 1! Here is how we summed up this unique take on a common dish: White Cheddar + Smoked Gouda + Fontina + BBQ Brisket + Fat Macaroni = HEAVEN! SHRIMP & GRITS: Between the 7 of us we have 200+ years of Shrimp & Grits experience, and we were all in agreement: this dish rocks! Creamy grits perfectly paired with chorizo sausage and shrimp. Delightful! HOUSEMADE CHARCUTERIE: A variety of meats/pate and hard/soft cheeses- paired perfectly and cured in-house. We enjoyed the Spanish Cheese, Soppressata, and pickled green strawberries.
WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE ABOUT DESSERT?
SALTED CARAMEL PANNA COTTA is a sweet and salty dream!
Be sure to give T&T a try and tell them Jackie sent you! As for me, I can’t wait for my next visit….We would like thank our waiter Scott Eckstein, who was experienced, efficient and entertaining! Also, thanks to Manager Jeff Condon, Exec. Chef Katie Lorenzen-Smith and Owner, Dianne Crowley. Y’all have truly created something special in our own backyard!
