G. Michael's Bistro just rolled out a new menu and I popped in on an HH reconnaissance mission. BTW, G.Mike's easily has one of the best HHs in town ($6 small plates that ain't that small and are fully realized courses plus $5 "design-your-own-if-you-want" martinis, e.g. Watershed up)
This Cold Appetizer Trio with Lowcountry pimento cheese, a lovely and mousse-y smoked trout pate, and marvelously tart housemade spicy bread and butter pickles is a must!
Speaking of "musts", this killer Fried Green Tomatoes with bacon and truffled egg salad, grilled napa cabbage and shaved gruyere was another big highlight
The Coconut marinated Grilled Watermelon with arugula salad, lime dressing, and rum-candied peanuts offered nice and light relief from the delicious decadence
But it was back to irresistible richness with G. Michael's sinfully great take on a S'more, which included a homemade graham-cracker like brownie and more blistered marshmallow fluff than should be allowed on one plate
The off-menu Coconut Chocolate Chip bar was another winner; topped with Jeni's Salty Caramel and caramel sauce, I think I even liked it more than the s'more
I would be remiss if I didn't alert you to another (but alas, not captured by photo) must: the homemade wild boar sausage with a scene-stealing plateful of zingy blackeyed peas and hominy
