This place is hip. We went on a Saturday night of a Spring Break week. My husband and I were definitely the oldest people here (we’re in our mid 50’s) but we were treated well. Our experience in Charleston is that the hostess is usually surly. How can that be? Shouldn’t the College of Charleston be able to generate personable, well groomed, reasonably hard working front of house staff? So far, we say no. However our hostess was all of those things and a refreshing change.
But I digress. The place is noisy (people were 4 deep at the bar), has handsome decor and an interesting and affordable menu. Our server was great, the food was all really good and sophisticated. Thin crust pizzas, yummy “snacks” and small plates and entrees. We shared crimini mushroom pizza w truffle oil and goat cheese, beet bruschetta w ricotta and shallots and confit pork cheeks w br sprouts crispy potatoes, mushrooms, pork jus. My initial read was that this was an attractive bar that also serves food. But I enjoyed everything. Some of the best food anywhere. I’m not usually a dessert eater, but the coconut semifreddo that tasted more like key lime was very delectable. Creamy, dreamy and reasonable. Great way to end a meal. The decible level was the only problem. I would certainly go back - but on a Tuesday. Might be quieter.
