Shad is Here Again!

When it comes to food, this is without question, my favorite time of the year.  From around the middle of February (despite the last couple of years when it arrived much sooner) till about the middle of April, the shad are running.  With them, of course, is their world-renowned roe.  Shad itself is often, sadly, ignored in much of the world because it is so filled with tiny bones it is almost impossible to filet and de-bone this fish. But here in Savannah, we are enormously lucky, because we have Russo’s, where the art of de-boning shad has been passed on from father to son for years.  So all we have to do is go to Russo’s and buy this delectable catch, take it home, cook it and eat it!    For more about shad and some recipes to use, just click here.

Russo’s Loss is Everyone’s Loss

Charlie Russo, owner of Russo’s Seafood and Russo’s Seafood Restaurant, lost his battle for the re-zoning which would have allowed his little restaurant to offer sit down dining. Although most residents of his Thomas Square neighborhood were enthused about the restaurant, a small but highly vocal group of nay-sayers, headed by Virginia Mobley, fought the issue long, loud and hard. We never have figured out why Mobley dislikes people sitting down to eat! It’s a well established fact that mixed-use neighborhoods of residential (single and multi-family) homes, retail venues, commercial space and office space, result in convivial, livable neighborhoods where residents and business owners know each other, cooperate, and ultimately build a better community. Crime decreases, too. Well, at least the little restaurant is still providing (take out only) delicious seafood and fish fare for all to enjoy.
