Avocado Fries at the Haberdasher

“The only thing better than a superbly crafted cocktail is a superbly crafted cocktail accompanied by an incredibly inventive small plate! Like a side of avocado fries. Let that sink in for a moment: French-fried slices of buttery avocado. These things are crisp as Mickey-D fries, but with a rich, melt-in-your-mouth interior. Oh yeah. You want these…” — John Peebles,  Principal Partner,  NAI-Mobile 

The Haberdasher • 113 Dauphin St. 436-0989

Rainbow Trout at Bonefish Grill

“One dish that’s sure to please is Bonefish Grill’s Pecan Parmesan Crusted Rainbow Trout paired with garlic whipped potatoes and sauteed spinach. Bonefish might be a national chain, but I am always impressed with their seafood selection! The chefs have perfected the crusted layer of the trout; it is flavorful, consistent and doesn’t take away from the flavor of the fish. Plus, the lemon butter potatoes are a wonderful, savory side that truly complement the main dish.”  — Carlisha Hartzog, Principal,  Hartzog Consulting

Buddha Bowl at the Warehouse

“I have been spending a little more time on the Eastern Shore, and my favorite lunch place is the Warehouse in Fairhope. Not only is there a great vibe with live music on occasion, but the food is amazing! My go-to lunch is The Original Buddha Bowl with steamed vegetables, lots of chicken, sweet ginger soy sauce and spicy mayo. Top it off with one of their delicious baked goods, and it is the perfect summer splurge!” — Ginna Inge, Owner,  The Steeple on St. Francis
