Best Dishes of 2013 Countdown #4: RockCreek Seafood and Spirits
Wild Mexican Prawns with Anson Mills Heirloom Grits
It’s not the recipe RockCreek Seafood owner and chef Eric Donnelly produced when he cooked at Toulouse Petit, but it’s every bit as lick-the-plate great: four plump prawns, bursting with juice and gilded with garlic, lolling on a bed of creamy grits and sauce flavored with a world of herbs and chilies and, yes, more garlic—with grilled bread for dredging. The place has been open all of a few months and this plate’s already a classic.
