Mainland Container Co. Kitchen & Bar Image

Hours: Dinner (Mon-Sat.), Weekend Brunch

Price: $$

Hidden at the end of a gravel drive off Ben Sawyer Boulevard, Mainland Container Co. is comprised of a rustic, beachy restaurant, a ground-level bar set in a shipping container, and ample umbrella-covered seating. Decadent bar food offerings range from wings in a variety of flavors; ball-sized hush puppies that are basically savory donuts drizzled with honey, and served with hot pepper jelly and pimento cheese; and a beer cheese-covered tater tot extravaganza called The Full Container. Despite such temptations, the sweet and friendly waitress strongly endorsed the Caprese-stuffed avocado, a clever union of the current avocado trend and the traditional salad from Capri. The two cold, firm avocado halves are served on a bed of arugula. The fish of the moment requires no modifications, it’s a successful execution made even better by the accompanying seasonal vegetables. Along with the caprese avocado dish, the flavor balance of this fish showcases the chef’s obvious command of farm-to-table cuisine. —Vanessa Wolf (Dish, Summer 2018)
