Every restaurant in the South has a shrimp and grits dish on the menu. But I’d like you to forget that any of those exist and pledge your lifelong loyalty to the one-and-only Jonah’s shrimp and grits. What makes their dish unique involves two things:  sautéed veggies and white cheddar. The veggies usually consist of zucchini, squash, and maybe some bell peppers. They are cooked to be tender, never mushy and provide a fresh bite to what could otherwise be a very heavy dish. The grits aren’t mushy either. They hold their own against the plump shrimp that crown the dish. Oh, and don’t forget the tang of the white cheddar in the grits. Once you’ve squeezed a lemon wedge over the whole thing, you’re ready to dig in. You’ll eat and eat, every bite better than the last.
