Vee Vee spring menu, part deux

My wife and I went to Vee Vee for the second time since Seth Morrison (formerly of the Biltmore and Perdix) took over the kitchen. Wow! I had a special last night of seafood sausage with fried green tomatoes and lobster succotash ($22). This was one of the best entrees I've had in a while. The sausage was light and nicely seasoned allowing the fresh seafood to come through. I was expecting a few bits of lobster to garnish the succotash. Instead there was a whole claw and half a tail of perfectly steamed lobster atop fresh lima beans, green beans and corn, a harbinger of summer's bounty yet to come. The fried green tomatoes were well fried, crisp and greaseless, a nice foil to the sausage. This dish is a couple of bucks higher than their usual price point but well worth it. My wife had the roasted arctic char with fried baby artichokes, pickled tomatoes and two purees of fava bean and kalamata olives. She enjoyed it and raved about the pickled tomatoes. We shared an appetizer of fried polenta with mushroom bolognese, which was tasty with clean elements of flavor and texture and an excellent orange and vanilla scented cheesecake with rhubarb compote and caramel sauce. I had previously placed Vee Vee in between the better gastropubs in JP and Ten Tables. With Morrison's masterful hand, i now happily place Vee Vee in with Ten Tables as one of JP's best.
