A couple weeks ago, I met up with friends for dinner at Crumb and Spigot in Bainbridge. Not only was I looking forward to trying a new-to-me restaurant, but I was also intrigued by the creative name.
We started our evening by sharing the bar nuts, which had just the right amount of spice and paired nicely with our drinks from the extensive craft beer menu.
For my entree, I chose the shrimp and grits, which features bacon and beer-braised shrimp, pickled jalapeno grits, and a fried egg.
All the elements of this dish came together to make something really delicious and spicy and warm and comforting.
My friends each chose pizza: the bianco and the speck, respectively.
Watching these pies come out of the wood-fired oven, I added a pizza to my must-try list for my return trip. While we were waiting, we saw an order of mac ‘n cheese come up and couldn’t resist ordering a side dish of it to share.
This was the ultimate in comfort food, so rich and decadent! And speaking of decadence, we three-way split the brownie sundae for just a nibble of decadence to end the meal.
The restaurant itself is small, with a few tables and booths, as well as two long “communal seating” tables. We ended up at one of those, with a great view of the open kitchen.
I truly enjoyed all the elements of the meal at Crumb and Spigot. The choices were warm, familiar, and comfortable with a foodie twist, a combination which should please just about everyone.
