Bite of the Bay

MB's contributing food fanatics share the local dishes that made them hungry for more this month.

Clipper Sandwich at Heroes

“You might think that Heroes is a franchise, but in fact, the locally owned sports bar and grille uses fresh ingredients and a lot of imagination to produce super sandwiches like The Clipper. Hand-sliced smoked turkey with mushrooms and bacon are complemented by Heroes’ Clipper Sauce, a tangy, mustard-based concoction. Portions are generous, so plan a light supper! You will not be disappointed.” — William W. Oppenheimer, President,  Enveloc, Inc.

Heroes Sports Bar and Grille • 36 Hillcrest Rd. & 273 Dauphin St. 433-4376

Dinner and Dessert at Char 32

“We started with the lamb chop lollipops that come with a delicious chimichurri roasted red pepper coulis. It served four as an appetizer. Later, we finished off the meal with banana pudding, which is the owner’s mother’s recipe. Traditional banana pudding is baked with a meringue and has homemade chocolate sauce drizzled on top, almost like a banana pudding sundae. Absolutely to die for!”  — Taylor Houser,  Advancement Director, Bayside Academy

Barbecue at Saucy Q

“‘Saucy’ definitely describes the food at Saucy Q Bar B Que — the savory sauce is mouthwatering. They have a bell that you ring if you liked their service, and the atmosphere is casual and friendly. One time I took all the Mobile Symphony’s Composers-in-Residence to Saucy Q. They have very different personalities and different musical styles, but all agreed that it was one of their favorite things about their time in Mobile.” — Scott Speck,  Music Director, Mobile Symphony Orchestra

Saucy Q Bar B Que • 1111 Government St. 433-7427

Chicken Board at Red or White

“Sometimes the best lean into the weekend is meeting a friend at Red or White on Dauphin Street. I recently went for a glass (or two) of Aubry Rosé coupled with the Roasted Chicken Board, a wonderful heavy appetizer or light dinner. Expertly seasoned chicken perfectly placed on a French baguette is the base for this dish. Fresh tomato, pickles and cheese create the perfect bite. It might even lead to a third glass of Champagne and an Uber.” — Mary Stewart Nelson,  Strategic Market Director,  Johnson & Johnson
