shrimp and grits

  • j

I am in serach of restaurants that serve variations on the traditional Carolina Lowcountry dish of shrimp in a simple stock and tomato sauce, ladled over a pool of grits.

The more aberrant the better. I've heard tell of grits laced with blue cheese. I've seen many a variation that includes bacon and other extraneous items.

I believe the spread of the dish began with Craig Caliborne's 1980-something NYT article on Chapel Hill, NC chef Bill Neal. I'm now in search of the illogical conclusions of that journalistic event.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated...

  1. Interesting project, I hope you'll keep us informed. Bill Neal was revered as a god when I lived in CH in the mid 80s.
