We dined here on a whim, and sat outside. There's an option to dine in an outside courtyard, which looked lovely, but we chose people-watching instead. Since we had eaten earlier, we decided to share a couple of small plates to get a sampling of flavors. Well, our plan to eat lightly was derailed in two ways: first is the bread, which is good on it's own (soft, warm, fresh), but coupled with a honey and parsley infused butter...well, it was just too good...we ended up requesting (and consuming) a second loaf (in our limited defense, they were small loaves). Next thing: the 'small plates' were not so small - in fact, they were typical fancy-restaurant sized portions. The prices of $15-$17 were much more palatable once we saw the size of the dishes; considering how rich the dishes were, it was plenty for dinner. The crab cake with bay shrimp and rice had lots going on, and it was all tasty. It was a too salty for my liking (a theme in many of our restaurant outings in Charleston) but still tasty. We also got the ricotta gnocchi, which were very soft (almost too soft-no teeth required), and I would have preferred to have them seared with a crunchy finish. Still, very tasty. We also tried the local specialty of she-crab soup, which was very creamy, heavy, and tasty. Overall, a very good, enjoyable meal. I actually preferred this meal to the one we had at the much lauded Fig.
