Golden tilefish

Every time we visit The Grocery, we leave full and happy. Kevin Johnson and crew continue to lead the locavore movement on Upper King, and rightly so. The ever-changing menu includes an array of small and large plates, making it easier for groups to sample and share a variety of good eats. We’ve seen whole-roasted fish; big, dry-aged porterhouse steaks; and enormous servings of pilau, but the “Plates” options are ample size, too. The huge, wood-burning oven adds a touch of smoke to beef cheeks and squid, but we can’t seem to stop thinking about the wood-roasted carrots with crumbles of pistachio, dates, Greek yogurt, and feta — a sensational dish that perfectly symbolizes what locavorism is all about. Among the hundreds of jars of pickled veggies, preserves, and relishes, there’s a stellar bar program, too. Choosing a drink at The Grocery is not an easy task, but you can’t go wrong with the Cannonborough Old Fashioned — it’s become one of our go-to cocktails. —Eric Doksa Dish (Winter 2015)
