Last week while traveling through Mississippi, I had the privilege of dining at Weidmann's in Meridian. Mississippi's oldest restaurant, which opened in 1870, is a true gem. Southern hospitality greets you the minute you walk through the door.
Our hostess greeted up promptly and our server Michelle was absolutely perfect and charming.
We started our meal by sharing the Fried Green Tomatoes with 1870 Sauce - their famous fried green tomatoes topped with shrimp, mushrooms, tomatoes and spicy cream sauce $11.95. Sorry for the not perfect picture. I was in too big of a hurry to dig in and try them.
We shared a Ceasar salad. Very lightly dressed and topped with shaved Parmesan. $3.50 We ate every bite! It was delicious.
Harold had the soft shell crab sandwich (dressed) with a side of their homemade potato chips. $12.95
I chose the Loaded Crab Cakes. Two homemade crabcakes topped with crabmeat Belvedere and melted fontina cheese and topped with buerre blanc. And surprise! They're sitting atop two additional fried green tomatoes. I chose Creole Cabbage as my side item. $17.95
Fleur de Lolly wouldn't lie to you. These are absolutely as delicious as they look.
I could have eaten an entire plate of the side dish and been perfectly happy.
We ordered a slice of Black Bottom Pie ($5.25) to share while on the road. I'm so glad we did!
