The food here is some of the best around. Unfortunately it's in tourist hell, but most avoid it because of the prices and it's not exactly a good place for kids, at all!
So we started with the Low country jumbo shrimp made with grilled shrimp, white cheddar hominy, okra, cherry tomatoes and a smoke bacon butter. OMG, it was soooo good. The hominy was a little runny for my taste but the rest of the dish made up for it. ($14)
Hubby started with the yellowfin tuna tartare with miso cavier and a scallop cream with freeze dried pickled ginger cubes and wasabi powder. Just an amazing presentation! ($18)
For dinner I had the heritage chicken ($29) The BEST chicken dish ever! Made with seperate servings of white and thigh meat, smoked to a delicious doneness served with grains that were prepared like risotto, fave beans, english peas & maitake mushroom sauce. You can't believe the flavors in this dish.
Then hubby had the dirty south swordfish ($34) served with risotto, littleneck clams, and rubbed with a barbque sauce which is unlike any barbque sauce you've ever had. It tasted like smoked tomatos and spices, none of the ketchup crap most people call barbque. Simply amazing.
Usually when we go out I can taste a dish and duplicate it very closely to the original dish at home, These dishes I could not. It was molecular gastronemy at it's best!Yes, it is expensive. Very expensive, but oh so worth it. Service was nicely paced, never rushed, and always there when we needed it.
Afterwards we had drinks at the bar you can't even describe. Flaming oranges in tequila, pumpkin pie flavored cocktails, the tastes here just leave you breathless.
