Yes, LOCAL Shrimp.....It's Summertime and the livin' is easy.
Charleston restaurants always tell you when they proudly serve fresh LOCAL shrimp.
You might say "bragging."
As you look this over, I know you're calculating.
Yes, that is a POUND of peel 'n' eat Lowcountry neighborhood shrimp. For each of us.
Any fresher and I'd still be holding the dripping net.
The Noisy Oyster bought an old Applebee's on the corner of Market and East Bay and present visitors (and residents) yet another fresh reason to come downtown.
Arriving just before 8:00pm on a balmy Friday night, we were told there'd be a short wait for a table. Makes sense... height of season and all. Carriages and tourists wandered by and about 15-20 minutes later we were sipping a cold beer.
The server got a break as he started his spiel. He suggested we start with an order of fried green tomatoes and how great the rock shrimp taste...we stopped him and said we live here and just wanted a pound of peel & eat.
He smiled and said "Surely, NOT one pound to share."
Good food and good service.
And a good tip.
