I am visiting the Eastern Shore for a few days and I want to share a new find: Jimmie & Sook’s! Not only do they serve the meatiest soft-shell crab sandwich I’ve ever seen, but the raw oysters were also excellent. Huge and fresh!
I also tried soft-shell clams, which I never even heard of. They are an acquired taste, even for old-school Eastern Shore families. You have to rinse them in water, then you dunk them in melted butter.
Jimmie & Sooks sold a “waterman’s dozen” — like, 14 — raw oysters for about $9. Try that hat trick at home!
They have live music 4 nights a week, a bar, and lunch counter. I will definitely be back.
It takes a Renaissance woman to cover the cool, shocking, tasty, thought-provoking things on this planet. Tamar started life as a professional violinist; she was the youngest girl to solo with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. After becoming a criminal defense attorney in Baltimore, she discovered a world beyond classical music and courthouses. Perhaps it was when she was on TV with celebs Bill Maher and Peter Frampton. Possibly, it was after she judged the Roadkill Cookoff or the International Water Tasting Festival. Tamar is a Kentucky Colonel and has managed several Southern rock and alt-country bands.Tamar has traveled around the world; let her help you guide you to the special places to go and the fabulous things to bring there and bring back home!
