Finally! We had a winner last week.

Reader Tom Riordan correctly guessed that we were eating tacos at Laredo on Lafayette Square, the cozy Mexican joint facing Lafayette Park. Which brings us to this week, and what we can only assume is another tough one: Where are we eating this plate of shrimp and grits? Head-on and delicious, served on a bed of cheesy grits, these little buggers went down deliciously.

So. You know the drill. Leave your best guess in the comment section below, along with a valid email address. The first person to guess correctly gets $20 to La Tejana Taqueria (3149 N. Lindbergh, 314-291-8500). Thanks for playing, and good luck!

We welcome tips and feedback, but not a flurry of emails asking if you've won the contest. We'll email the winner, so chill out already!
