Editor's Note: When we hunger for clever twists on the classics we grew up with, we take to these savvy restaurants, where everything old is newfangled again. Say hello to the Best New Comfort Foods.
Like a comfort-food parfait, this Southern-inspired appetizer layers on the decadence. At its base lies a sturdy disc of green tomato fried to a crisp inside a battered encasement. The Indigo Duck in Franklin, known for its rich Lowcountry cooking with a French accent, embraces the essential FGT accompaniment, remoulade—a lemony mayonnaise played up here with earthy hits of tarragon—not only for the flavor but also to adhere the dish’s components: plump steamed shrimp and strata of tomatoes, with a crisscross of thick oven-scorched bacon adding even more wallop.
