One of the Causeway’s best is helping you get an early start. Ed’s Seafood Shed began opening its doors to morning weekend patrons in need of an eye-opening meal this past Saturday and Sunday. It seems as if owner “Panini” Pete Blohme is focused on breakfast classics like pancakes and omelettes as well as Southern breakfast bowls.
Sounds great, but so do $2 mimosas and $3 Bloody Marys! Breakfast is served 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. followed by the regular lunch menu. Expect good things with that incredible view of the bay. Don’t sweat it. Cooler temperatures will be here before we know it, and that deck will be solid gold.
Southern National offers Steel Smokin barbecue in the courtyard
Dauphin Street’s fine dining boys are slinging the ‘cue at Southern National. You’re familiar with them as a dinner and drinks nightspot and weekend brunch place, but the Reggie Washington/Duane Nutter operation has now launched Steel Smokin by Southern National.
Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the courtyard of Southern National at 360 Dauphin will be smoking hot with barbecue, and while an official menu hasn’t been posted yet, I’ve been told you’ll need plenty of napkins. With these guys behind it, you know it is going to be fantastic. Bring an appetite. Napkins are provided.
Bay Gourmet holds grand opening at Crown Hall
The corner of Broad and Dauphin has undergone massive changes over the past few months, and you’re about to see the end result. Crown Hall at 853 Dauphin St. is the new home of Bay Gourmet, one of Mobile’s premier catering and wedding planning businesses, and this weekend is the grand opening.
Friday, Sept, 13, during ArtWalk, there will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony and a chance to see what they’ve been up to from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. You’ll get a preview of the beautiful new event space as well as the future bar and restaurant.
For more information, visit them on social media or stop by to pick up grab-and-go items to make your dinner a breeze. You may like the tetrazzini, but I swear by the tomato pie. My sister gets the grits and grillades.
Mobtown Burger Week coming in October
It’s time to find your favorite specialty craft burger in the Port City as local restaurants come together to support Restore Mobile. The dates are set from Oct. 5 through 12, and all you have to do is eat burgers at one of the participating restaurants, including Café 219, Bob’s Downtown, Callaghan’s, The Haberdasher, Heroes, Iron Hand Brewing, LoDa Bier Garten, Nixon’s, Southern National, The Noble South, Royal Scam, T.P. Crockmier’s and Truman’s.
I can’t wait to see what the restaurants who don’t normally offer burgers come up with, and what the burger joints do to step up the game. For more info about this event and Restore Mobile visit mobtownburgerweek.com.
