Chandler's Gulf Shrimp Roll

Tastemaker
By Clark Miller | Aug. 25, 2018

Who says a happy hour can’t be a dignified part of life? With its half-price happy hours from 4pm–6pm, Chandler’s, an intimate basement eatery at 215 1/2 Howard Street in Petoskey, achieves that lofty goal with help from its starter plates. Especially interesting is the Gulf Shrimp Roll (half price at $7). A creation of Executive Chef Tom Kaszubowski, this hearty dish includes avocado, red bell peppers, shrimp, pineapple, togarashi spice, sweet chili ginger, soy sauce, and a hefty dab of wasabi that’s strong enough to require an emergency drink order if you don’t have one handy. Kaszubowski says the roll’s been a big hit this summer. It’s just enough to get semi-hungry diners in the mood for a full meal. Dine inside or on the secluded outdoor patio. Another recommendation for a starter: the Yellowtail “Hamachi,” served with sweet corn relish, chives, chili flakes, and locally-sourced black garlic aioli. (231) 347-2981, chandlersarestaurant.com
