Eat This: Shrimp and Grits at The Kitchen Sink

Editor's note: The Kitchen Sink has closed.

The Kitchen Sink’s shrimp and grits (eponymously named The Kitchen Sink) is simply lick-your-plate good. In this classic dish – with several big twists – cheesy grits that strike the perfect balance between runny and thick are topped with sauteed shrimp, andouille sausage, bell peppers and mushrooms and then bathed in a rich, slightly spicy crabmeat-and-Tasso ham gravy. If the dish needed anything else (It doesn’t.), the scratch-made, deep-fried corn fritters bobbing along its perimeter are like icing on the cake.
