Neptune Oyster: Terrific Shrimp and Grits, and Timing Your Arrival

opinionatedchef | Feb 23, 201207:54 PM

If anyone is craving a really great Shrimp and Grits, Neptune Oyster has it on their new menu.
Succulent gulf shrimp on very spicy ragout of tomato/peppers/tasso ham/ andouille, all over a bed of cheddar Anson Mills grits. THIS is the Shrimp and Grits I wanted to have at Highland Kitchen .

If you ever wondered about portion size on the Hamachi Crudo, I can now tell you that it is major generous. At $15, about 3 times a Clio portion; maybe equivalent to 6-8 average size pieces of sashimi.The Scallops with Duck Confit and Shaved Pear etc.- looked wonderful.

Btw, with regards to the wait there, and timing your arrival, our experience today, Thursday, 2/23/12,nice temperate weather, no snow, was:
5:20PM all tables had just filled; we waited 1/2 hour for table; meanwhile, 10 people took bar seats. 7:15PM- 4 tables vacated and were immediately filled. I am not saying this is a dependable schedule; I'm just offering some info.
