The Place: The Regional Kitchen & Public House, CityPlace, 651 Okeechobee Road, West Palm Beach; 557-6460 or www.eatregional.com.
The Price: $11; with shrimp, $18
The Details: Creamy and slightly chewy stone-milled grits cooked in milk easily stand alone, with plenty of stir-ins served at the edge of the bowl: crispy
bacon, roasted jalapeño bits, grilled scallions and hoop cheddar cheese melted on top.
The addition of five plump Florida shrimp, smoky with housemade barbecue sauce, takes it to a second level. You could top it all with a poached egg for an additional $2.
This is on the brunch menu, served weekend days, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. It’s a bowl worthy of sharing — if you’re so generous. ¦
