Rooftop Low Country

Posted in District of Columbia, South by melissamccart on May 6, 2008

Having grown up in the North, I had never been enticed by a low country boil until I had talked to Metrocurean about it the same week my parents told me about theirs at a party down in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina.

I finally had one this past weekend at a Nascar tailgate–yes, Nascar— when hosts made a terrific version with red potatoes, corn on the cob, and shrimp, and sausage, minus crab.

Now I’m obsessed and have to have my own with help from the Lee Brothers. Though I don’t have an idyllic setting, round one is tonight on my roof for neighbors, with skillet cornbread on the side.  At least we’ll have terrific weather and a lovely 360 view of the city.

Don’t have time or incentive to make it? Check out the crawfish and shrimp boils at Acadiana, Fridays on the patio from 3:30 to 6:30.
