Taste of Mobile celebrated its 36th annual event at the Arthur R. Outlaw Convention Center, Mobile, Ala. on November 7, 2013. One of the city’s largest dinner parties, Taste of Mobile was host to over 1200 diners who partook in fabulous samplings of over 50 of our area’s best restaurants. Proceeds benefited Goodwill Easter Seals of the Gulf Coast, helping people with disabilities in our community.
This year Taste of Mobile’s judging panel awarded Original Oyster House the 2013 Best Independent Restaurant. The combination of the tastiest cheese grits around topped with blackened shrimp was prepared and served by Chef Richie Pippin, kitchen manager of Original Oyster House on the causeway.
