Remedy is a restaurant like no other. I fell in love as soon as I walked in. The charcoal gray tufted booths, the mix of old and new architecture and fixtures, the creamy mint green accents…pure bliss.
One look at the menu and I knew this place had a remedy for what ailed me. I started with a good, strong cup of coffee. Then we chose a couple of sodas from the fountain menu. First up was the Tropic Thunder. A mix of fresh banana and pineapple juices with a spritz of soda. Hawaii in a glass. Next, we traveled back in time to our childhoods with the Orange Lazarus Orgeat. Imagine if orange creme soda and Orange Julius got married and had a baby….it would be this drink. Oh so good. Both were served in tall glasses with striped, paper straws.
For a starter, we ordered the toasted pimento cheese. It was served on lightly, toasted bread and a cup of cream of tomato soup. Another win. The pimento cheese was homemade and tasted wonderful. Dipped into the soup it was even better. I hated to share it.
I ordered the butter-pecan waffles. The picture says it all. Two big waffles topped with sweet peach compote, pecans, salted butter and maple syrup. The salted butter was genius. It saved the dish from being too sweet.
Next up was the house filet o’ fish. This is NOT your ordinary, greasy fish sandwich. The redfish was breaded with panko crumbs and fried just right. It was served with real American cheese, lettuce and tartar sauce on a ginormous grilled bun. Oh! And a side of the wonderful cream of tomato soup.
The only drawback to Remedy is that I don’t live close enough to eat there every night. I am heading back soon to try the dinner menu.
