Best Thing We Ate: Crab Beignets at Belly & Trumpet

By Farah Fleurima  |  December 6, 2013

We noshed anew on a popular treat at Uptown's Belly & Trumpet: crisp outside, creamy inside crab fritters. The perfect snack with a fruit-forward wine, these fritters arrived piping hot, filled with tender shreds of fresh shellfish. And if you've gone ahead and ordered the aforementioned vino, it'll sing with a dip of the beignet into the accompanying Pernod aioli. The appetizer beautifully prepares your palate for even more deliciousness from the mind of executive chef Brian Zenner; the whole-fried branzino with a bright chermoula is utterly happy-making.
