7/13/2018: Nation Fry Day
A day that will forever be remembered throughout this great nation, and right here along Florida’s Gulf Coast, as having been loaded with the sights, smells, and tastes of a thousand-thousand different and exotic starches. The smell of back-country peanut oils and decadent duck fats wafted through the night sky and tickled out nostrils playfully, beckoning us to the nearest purveyor of fine local fries. We let our sniffers do the walking and found ourselves eye-to-eye with Veronica’s Fish and Oyster Bar (@veronicasfishandoyster, veronicasfishandoyster.com).
Drum-roll please… we ate their french fries. The “Veronica Fries”- hand cut and served with malt vinegar aioli- to be exact. Crunchy on the outside, salty and light on the inside, and the malt vinegar aioli was truly sauce-sational (see what we did there??). A delicious fry, but can you really go wrong? We seized the night with one mission in mind: explore Sarasota’s premier french fry scene on this FRY-YAY. And, guess what? Mission accomplished.
The rest of their menu, which was full of raw bar and seafood specialties like Tuna Poke, Snapper and Scallop ceviche, and Crispy Oyster Antipasto Salad, sounded fabulous. We will definitely be returning in the near future. Watch out oysters; we’re comin’ for ya next!
