Eat This: Frogmore Stew from Sweet Grass Next Door
I realize that it’s silly to tell you to eat soup when it’s a bajillion degrees outside, but I’m doing it anyway. The Frogmore soup from Sweet Grass Next Door is so good that it shouldn’t matter that it’s nearly July.
The soup, which is really more like gumbo, is loaded with corn, potatoes, slices of housemade sausage, tomatoes, shrimp and crab. It’s savory, but not too spicy. I can’t decide if I think it would be good cold or not, but it could be.
It’s on the small plates menu, but if you’re not ravenous, it makes a decent (and filling) meal.
