88: Fried Green Tomato BLT from Butcher and the Boar


As a countdown to the Best of the Twin Cities 2016, coming April 20, we're serving up 100 of our favorite local dishes. Here are the best dishes, drinks, snacks, and sweet treats we encountered over the last year.

At this late date, we should all know it's nigh impossible to improve upon the trusty and noble BLT. Unless, of course, you put an egg on it, toss in some deep-fried goodness and toast up some buttery Pullman loaf. They've done all of the above at Butcher and the Boar, plus slipped some chile in the mayo, and finally did the only upright and conscientious thing there is to do: retain the iceberg, the one and only lettuce that ought to come within any distance of a BLT.
