20. Low Country Shrimp and Grits at Whisk
Tucked away in a small strip mall away from the lively section of South Miami, you'll find the busy, somewhat noisy Whisk Gourmet Food & Catering. The restaurant/caterer features a menu filled with modern takes on traditional southern cuisine, so it's no surprise that the low country shrimp and grits is such a flavorful dish.
Pecan wood smoked bacon crumbles give the Anson Mills grits flavor, before they're topped with fresh, juicy Crimini mushrooms and grilled shrimp. Served in two portion sizes, we suggest getting the small portion for yourself (four shrimp for $9.95), so you can sample some of Whisk's sides like fried green tomatoes or sauteed spinach. Or, get a large portion for the table ( eight shrimp for $16.95), and dine family style.
