Best Appetizer (2010)
Scene: Fish City Grill
Time: Any "R" month
Dad: "Son, it was a brave man who ate the first oyster."
Son, giving it right back: "It was a brave man who ate the first anything."
Dad, smiling: "True."
Waitress: "Here's your Oyster Nachos. Enjoy."
Dad digs in to an ample appetizer plate; Son, not so much. Each fried oyster is adorned with pico de gallo perched atop a tortilla chip lathered with a thin layer of chipotle tartar sauce. The result: a crunchy, fishy, tasty, briny, spicy, chewy burst of taste and texture. Fish City has been known to stand behind their appetizer; this particular waitress even tells Dad if he doesn't like the Oyster Nachos, he doesn't have to pay for them. It's a foolish man who would refuse that offer.
