Ocean blue walls adorned with fish nets are an apt theme at Bahamain Pot, Little Haiti's popular Carribean eatery. Owner Trudy Ellis hails straight from Nassau and specializes in dishes unique to the island, such as conch fritters and whole fried fish. Quite possibly her most notable breakfast item, boiled fish and grits, is served with a slice of warm Johnny cake, a savory and sweet French toast-meets-cornbread concoction. Diners who prefer American comfort food can find plenty of option on the menu as well, including southern fried chicken and a tender pork chop sandwich.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
