At The Local Palate, we have all celebrated the Fourth of July in different southern venues: picnicking by Lake Cheston in Sewanee, Tennessee, boating in the harbor of Charleston, South Carolina, engaging in water balloon wars at Lake Summit, North Carolina, drinking Dixie beer on the levee of New Orleans, and watching fireworks over the Mississippi River. We’ve also enjoyed farther-flung celebrations: under the stars of Coronado Bay in San Diego, the rooftops of New York, lobster boils in Connecticut, and in one case in London, a seemingly odd place to feast on fried chicken while celebrating America’s freedom. But no matter the venue, there is always one constant: July 4th draws us outdoors and often to water. With this outdoor inspired menu by chef John Zucker of Cru Cafe, independence never tasted so good!
