Cav Wine Bar -- fried okra heaven!

larochelle | Sep 18, 2006 07:12 PM

So this weekend I finally made it to Cav to check it out and more importantly get me some okra.

We sat at the bar, had a nice glass of sparkling ($10), the fried okra ($7) and the roasted cauliflower ($7).

The okra is sliced down the middle, tempura battered and fried. It comes with a aoli which, to me, was completely unnecessary because the okra was amazingly fantastic, the seeds pop - yum, yum, yum.

According to the server, their okra has a "following" so much so that last year one regular came in on the last day okra was on the menu and ordered the last three orders to tide her over. (sounds like something I would do? do I have a food twin out there?)

Anyway, they'll have it on the menu as long as possible and expect okra season to last for another couple of months.

Oh and the cauliflower was good, the wine was nice....
