Some colleagues and I went to grab a bite to eat prior to doing some shopping at Holiday House. We chose to visit a local place in downtown Little Rock called the Copper Grill. The group that owns this downtown restaurant also owns a couple of other local restaurants that are really good as well.
Since we were headed to do some serious shopping none of us wanted anything really heavy. I opted for the soup of the day which was a Cream of Portobello Mushroom and the starter of Fried Green Tomatoes. My colleges opted for burgers, sandwiches, and bruchetta.
Fried Green Tomatoes are totally a southern thing. Every time I order them I think of the movie too. These were fried perfectly, warm, and not greasy. Breading had a nice crunch. Also served with several sautéed gulf shrimp, some lump crabmeat, and house-made remoulade sauce on the side. It made this starter perfect for my main entree.
