The Plate: Shrimp & Grits
The Place: The Old Key Lime House, 300 E. Ocean Ave., Lantana; 582-1889 or www.oldkeylimehouse.com.
The Price: $11.99
The Skinny: The view is so pretty at Lantana’s Old Key Lime House that the food could be beside the point at the waterfront restaurant.
But the team does one better than that, serving up fresh seafood that’s decent regardless of the view.
This order of shrimp and grits, served at brunch on Sundays, had five large shrimp served in a savory sauce atop creamy grits.
The five shrimp were plump and tender and the bits of bacon lent a decadent crunch to the savory sauce.
The Maryland-style crab cake was a hit with my companion, who said the patty was loaded with large lumps of sweet crab meat.
