Some in our group have never had “Southern Fried Pickles” before ... so when we saw that offering on the menu at “Grease Burger, Beer and Whiskey Bar,” (on Clematis Street, in West Palm Beach), we had to give it a try.
When properly battered and well-seasoned, dill pickles are supposed to come out light and crunchy, with just a tinge of tanginess and heat, to keep you coming back for more.
Because these pickles were heavily coated, bready-tasting, and, were served inexcusably cold, this dish scored an “F.”
(While it only set us back $4.95, it still was a major disappointment, particularly for the “newbies” in our midst ....)
According to the restaurant’s website, “Grease looks and feels like something out of NYC’s Meat Packing District circa the turn of the century. With a working fireplace, long solid oak bar and steel meat hooks hanging from the ceiling the place is steeped in character.”
The place is certainly steeping in something ... (but “character” ain’t the word that immediately comes to mind.)
