I want to give a big shout-out to Dirty Dick's in Avon, NC. There I had one of the best dishes I've ever had in my life, anywhere. It was fried green tomatoes in a remoulade sauce, topped with crumbled goat cheese. You wouldn't think all those flavors and ingredients could work together without cancelling each other out, but they did. I was just after the tomatoes, but didn't think to ask for them plain, and I was sure glad I didn't! A big thanks to the bartender and chefs, too, for making it vegetarian for me. And BTW, best hushpuppies anywhere in the OBX.
