I have been a fan of Cora’s at the White House, 1230 Beach Blvd., Biloxi, for quite a while, and, in keeping with the theme of this week’s blog posts, it is a great place to take a date.
The menu is exciting and has great seafood options. If you get appetizers make sure to try the crab cakes and fried green tomatoes.
For main courses, I recommend the shrimp and grits and the trout almondine. There also are great steaks if you are in the mood for red meat.
But I have to admit, I’d end that date at the swanky rooftop lounge. On a starry night, the view of the beach is wonderful.
There are drinks from the bar, and a light selection of small plates.
A glass of wine, the sound of the waves coming up on the beach, a full moon and a sea breeze: how could you ask for more? This places makes my top five date places on the Coast.
