When garnishes go crazy

Update: This was a tough one! The restaurant thhat serves this dramatically-garnished bowl of seafood etouffee is Shields Manor Bistro in Platte City.

 

---------------------------------------------------------------

Fat City loves a creative garnish. Turnips carved into little swans. Carrots artfully transformed into lotus blossoms. Even the traditional orange slice and sprig of parsley, the standard garnish of the 1960s and '70s. Plates always need a splash of color.

But one can go, you know, a little crazy with the concept.

 

The big bowl of seafood etouffee shown here has such an outlandish garnish tells its own story: Someone's prom corsage has fallen apart and accidently plopped into a bowl of spicy stew, and the restaurant owner has said, "What the hell," added a gratuitious lemon wedge and sent it out to the patron as is. That's not what actually happened, but it might be a better explanation than "No, we meant to do this."

What restaurant served this dramatically bedecked dish?
