Three weeks ago I went with Andy and his family on their annual beach vacation. The change in the current climate meant no restaurants or activities beyond hanging on the beach and dining at home, thus the trip was very different than usual for them. However, one thing remained unchanged; seafood was to be enjoyed as much as possible and as many times as possible. Upon returning we both continued to have a hankering for seafood. Enter Crab Pizza and Sunday Fish Fry, a small way to capture the feelings of relaxation and summer during a crazy time.
If you wander down Del Ray’s, “The Avenue,” you won’t miss the farm-red building with a rustic fence bordering the patio. Stomping Ground opened two years ago and quickly became popular for its made-from-scratch biscuits and its neighborhood vibe. On weekends, excited guests line up before Stomping Ground opens hoping to be the first to get a just-out-of-the-oven biscuit or a fresh salad. Stomping Ground is mostly known for its fast casual breakfast and lunch but on Thursdays and Fridays they provide a full dinner service after 5:00pm. All meals are built from local, seasonal food that is organic whenever possible.
