Best Wonderful WhitingBrooklyn New York 2002 - CAROLINA CREEK
When Southern cooking was reformulated for local ingredients by African American immigrants to the city in the 1920s, one of the prime dilemmas was what to substitute for catfish. Whiting was the answer, and it remains the premier soul fish in these parts. Lightly dusted with cornmeal and fried in fresh oil, the whiting at CAROLINA CREEK is this year's best. The barbecued ribs aren't bad, either.
