The Aha Moment Tour gave Birmingham's Veranda on Highland four stars and three wows in its blog.
The aha moment is "that split second of clarity and sudden insight that instantly changes your life, and it's the basis of the Mutual of Omaha insurance company's latest advertising campaign. The "aha moment tour" features a crew of five going on the road to capture aha moments from real people across the country. The tour's Airstream was in Birmingham last week.
Executive Chef Tom Robey told the crew he has aha moments each time a guest enjoys their experience or his food enhances someone’s special moment.
While some of the crew went off for Dreamland Ribs, Katie Kirby and her colleague, Brett Rogstad, put themselves in the hands of Robey for dinner. She sang the praises of crab and Corn Beignets with pickled okra tartar sauce; Fried Green Tomatoes topped with crawfish andouille; wine-braised Pork Butt over homemade gnocchi with tomatoes, capers, olives and garlic; and Jumbo White Barbecued Shrimp with yellow grits.
