November 11. Lunch At The Shrimp Factory In Savannah.

For lunch in Savannah, we headed back down to River Street and to the Shrimp Factory. Here's the menu:
I ordered the Shrimp in Puff Pastry.
Mr. Hawthorne ordered the grouper filet.
A Caesar salad was tossed tableside and we were offered non-traditional bacon on the salad. Not a bad salad. That's all I can say. It wasn't Rosie's salad.
Blueberry muffins with butter and a combination spread of butter, honey, and bourbon. Tasty.
Mr. Hawthorne's grouper. It wasn't memorable so I have nothing to say about it now, except I don't like all the pasta filler.
The concept of this was good I thought. Puff pastry and shrimp and green peas and mushrooms in a Chardonnay Cream Sauce.
The execution missed the mark. By a mile. The shrimp were tiny, tasteless, and rubbery. No doubt farm raised. The sauce was not a light Chardonnay cream sauce. It was a thick, gloppy, heavy mess. Rosie no likee.
