Blue crab fritter at Bacchanalia

Available at Bacchanalia !
In many ways this is the OG of Atlanta fine-dining dishes. Bacchanalia’s menu is continually changing, and this is one of the few constants. It’s light and refreshing while also being rich and decadent - a pile of crab over citrus with hints of vanilla, and Thai pepper that just touches on spicy. Slices of avocado add rich buttery texture. A dish that hits every point and counterpoint on the palate while remaining totally harmonious. $22.
