I have been waiting on this place to open and today I found the lights on and food was ready!
First, the reclaimed and remodeled structure is beautiful; hardwood floors, brick walls, well appointed, and a large gorgeous bar. Owner Jeff greeted us and let us choose a window seat, got our drink order, and told us a bit about the place.
The chef is a specialist in low country cuisine and there is a baker/pastry chef as well. Bread is prepared daily and yes, you can tell the difference!
I chose the smoked catfish. Awesome! Brined, smoked, lightly breaded in cornmeal, and resting on a savory bed of grits and porcini mushrooms. Atop the fish was a delicious green tomato and citrus glazed slaw.
This meal was so good it was actually fun to eat! My guest had a NC shrimp sandwich on a just out of the oven brioche. Yum!
I will be back. It’s just that simple.
