Bite Club: Daisy's delicious Gulf shrimp po'boy
It took me way too long to get down to Hyde Park for chef Erick Williams' Louisiana-inspired sandwich shop, but boy was it worth it.
Backstory: Daisy's Po-Boy and Tavern is Williams' second restaurant, just across the street from Virtue in Harper Court. Menu offerings include a muffuletta, fried chicken, catfish, and even alligator.
- But the winner here is the barbeque Gulf shrimp po'boy.
The bite: The sandwich is dressed with mayo, lettuce, and tomato, but it's the generous portions of shrimp — fresh and grilled to perfection — that make this sandwich stand out.
- Plus: The barbeque sauce adds just the right amount of kick to an already fantastic sandwich.
Of note: The fried shrimp po'boy was amazing as well.
The bottom line: A 6-inch po'boy will run you about $13. But it's not every day that you can taste sandwiches from a James Beard Award-winning chef and his team.
