Dish of the Week: Corn on the cob at G. Michael’s

By

Posted on:

The fact that we are big fans of the small plates menu at G. Michael’s is no secret. The German Village spot’s $6 happy hour (where all small plates are 6 bucks in the bar) is one of the best fine dining deals in town. And that means I’ve come to know this list well. My pick off the menu this week? The spicy and sweet Broiled, Vanilla Poached Corn on the Cob ($5).

I loved the heat of the cilantro lime aioli drizzled over top, which added depth to the salty Parmigiano-Reggiano, sweet maple syrup and crisp scallions sprinkled around the plate. Do go for the $2 upcharge for maple smoked bacon—it adds texture and lots of smokiness. It’s like a dressed-up, Southern version of elote (grilled corn on the cob slathered with a mayo-and-sour-cream sauce, cotija cheese and chili powder).

The dish is delivered to your table with a knife to cut the kernels right off the cob. My dining companion and I must have looked like we were having fun, because we overheard people at the table next to us say they would have what we were having. I definitely recommend you do, too.

(And in case you didn’t know, G. Michael’s offers a three-course, $30 menu on Mondays. A great excuse to dine out at the start of the week.)
