I had the pleasure of being a guest emcee alongside @theleebros at the @certifiedsc “Fresh On The Menu” stage earlier today! Chef Brandon Velie from @juniperlicious prepared Quail and Dumplings, using quail from @manchesterquail out of Columbia. If you missed out, there are still a few chef/farmer demos today and a great lineup tomorrow at @sewechs (and it’s free to attend)! 📸: @manchesterquail
#Switcharoo is one of my favorite (and more unique) food events in Charleston. One night a year at @edmundsoast, chefs become bartenders and bartenders become chefs, all to benefit @bensfriendscharleston. Everyone absolutely brought it last night, can’t wait until next year.
Celebrated #nationalpizzaday early yesterday at the Green Door Reunion Tour with @rotirollschs and @firstnamebasisco. If you never had a chance to experience it, Green Door was very forward-thinking restaurant back in 2013 from Cory at @rotirollschs that was an absolute favorite of mine. Some of the iconic dishes from then returned in pizza form, making for an incredible (and nostalgic) night.
Headed out to Folly to check out one of the newest additions to Charleston, @wikiwikisandbar. The Spammy is a must (with brown sugar-cured Spam), along with a cocktail, of course. Such a fun spot- check out Instagram Stories to see more!
Always look forward to January and #ramenwithfriends by @shortgrain. Last night was the finale for 2019, with an incredible Country Ham Tan Tan Men from @jamesslondon of @chubbyfishchs. If you missed out this time, #ramenwithfriends2020 will be happening again at @jackrabbitfilly! 🙌
There are so many phenomenal restaurants in Charleston, but pop-ups around town are not to be missed. The Calamares a la Parilla from @thecastejons at @chsfermentory.
The Red Velvet Waffles from @theparkcafechs are a must to add to your Sunday brunch list. #chseats
Always love seeing what’s new at @workshopchs. My current lunch favorite? The Poke Bowl at @sushiwa_izakaya
Thanks @dapschs for making me fall back in love with one of my favorite cereals growing up. Apple Jacks Stacks.
The Vicious from @vicbiscuit1 truly lives up to its name. It all starts with a Cheddar & Jalapeño Biscuit and crispy chicken breast. House made @storey_farms maple sausage gravy goes on top next with cowboy candy (pickled jalapeños) and then finished with a maple syrup drizzle. Definitely worthy of a visit next time you’re in Mt. Pleasant. #chseats
Starting out the long holiday weekend at @paddockandwhisky with their excellent Sazarac, the New Orleans version of a classic whiskey cocktail.
Today’s gonna be fun. Excited to be taking over @chswineandfood on Instagram Stories later today to give you a behind the scenes look at what’s happening in the bakery at @mercantileandmash! Follow along at @chswineandfood later today for more! #chswffstreetteam
I’ve heard people talk about The Royale from @zerogeorgest, but finally stopped by to try it for myself. Incredible- The definition of the ultimate burger. A Wagyu Beef patty topped with shaved truffles, mushrooms & onions with a Kraft Singles fondue. You’ve done good, @vpetrillo. #tastemakerschs
I’ve missed you, @pigeon.hole. My only motivation to go out in the rain today was this pop-up at @tavernandtable. The Pastrami Hash Scramble alone made the trip so worth it. Welcome back. #pigeonholed
If you ever find yourself Downtown looking for a great burger, you have to add the Raclette Burger from @felixcharleston to your list. This short rib brisket burger covered in melted raclette and caramelized onions is so rich in flavor that it will likely become one of your new favorites.
Last week I had an absolutely incredible meal at @5churchcharleston to celebrate their 3rd Anniversary. This unique chef collaboration brought together @chefadamhodgson and @chefjamielynch of @5churchcharleston with @canter_matt of @establishmentchs and Ramon Tamanglo of @peninsulagrill. Looking forward to next year 5 Church!
