Tis my birthday today, and Georgia decided to take me out to lunch. My traditional birthday lunch is softshell crab, and Georgia called around and found that Jerry's Place
, a local seafood restaurant that we like, but rarely go to, (because it's usually crammed).
Conveniently located in a hole it the wall next to the local tire store in Prince Frederick. We were greeted at the door by Jerry himself, who told us he had put a hold on a couple of soft shells for us after Georgia's call.
But first, I ordered a cup of Maryland crab soup (there was a choice of cream of crab soup, but no true Marylander would choose that). Very good, with lump crab meat piled into a rich red (very Old-Bay-ish) vegetable soup.
The crab sandwich was fairly plain, but well done, although, they could have left just a touch of the crab mustard. Georgia had the haddock sandwich, and the amount of fish was too much; she brought one of the two fillets home.
If, through some mischance, you find yourself in Prince Frederick, put Jerry's on your list to try. It's not cheap, but it's worth it.
Happy Birthday! Maybe you’ll be rewarded with a Meg toothReplyDelete
