Rascals of Elturel
The Splurging Sturgeon struggled as a threadbare tavern for decades until its most recent owner, Hennut Griot, took its humorous name seriously. Originally from Ormpur, Griot discovered that his traditional fish dishes were too spicy for the local palate, so he hired Baldurian cooks to teach him Sword Coast recipes. After he mastered those and earned a stellar reputation, he expanded his menu to include dishes of his own for locals to try out. That success led Griot to hire a series of cooks from many lands, and from them he learned to prepare exotic fish fare.
Now the Splurging Sturgeon cooks just about any thing that’s pulled out of the river or sea, and in dozens of ways. The Splurging Sturgeon rotates its dishes based on popularity and availability. It also offers specials for the adventurous eater.
The restaurant is currently closed for unknown reasons.
