New month, new dish to be chosen.
February's Simply Amazing Dish of the Month was chosen at Sol Cocina Mexicana. Two dishes battled, but one stood out more.
It was the Borrego en Mole Negro de Oaxaca. It's grilled marinated New Zealand lamb chops, sweet plantains, toasted sesame and oaxaca style black mole sauce, served with black beans.
Its competitor was the Puntas de Filete. That's a sauteed beef tenderloin tip, sweet plantains, fire roasted tomato chipotle quernado salsa with melted oaxaca cheese, served with black beans.
The cook on the lamb chops were medium and came out perfect. The flavors blended well with both dishes, but the lamb chops just had the taste profile a cut above the other dish.
Go and try the award winner and then order its challenger next time. You decide.
Congratulations to Chef Armando Cobian and his staff.

You've probably seen the new signage where Woodland Creek Grille was before they closed. Well, it's another restaurant that'll soon be opening up, with familiar faces at the forefront.
The Inlet Provision Company will be opened shortly after Valentine's Day 2019 by Cyndi Moran and husband-and-wife team of Phillip and Kathy Bates. The trio own and operate Hot Fish Club and have done so for more than seven years.
It is located at 4891 Highway 17 Business, next door to the Hot Fish Club.
Here's a little about what they plan to offer.
“Good Food and Bad Advice.” Such is the motto for this one-of-a-kind restaurant that’s in the planning stages as we go to press. Located beside Hot Fish Club on the southern end of Murrells Inlet, it’s owned and operated by the HFC family – but it’s a totally different experience. The menu is quirky, to say the least, with a focus on affordability – most items run between $4 and $12 – and fresh, locally sourced meats, seafood and produce whenever possible. The team is still working out the particulars, but the choices are definitely different and change frequently to keep things interesting.
The menu can be found here.
We wish the trio the best with the new restaurant and urge everyone to try it when they officially open.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – The Myrtle Beach Area Hospitality Association will host its 13th Annual Trio Dinner on Monday, April 1, 2019, at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel, the host sponsor. It will start at 6:30 p.m.
The Trio Dinner is the culmination of a culinary arts mentorship program that pairs a professional chef with two students, one in high school and one in college. Each trio will showcase its unique cuisine at the Trio Dinner. Along with excellent fare, the event includes hors d’oeuvres by Grand Strand Provisions, a cocktail bar, live entertainment with U-N-I Jazz and a silent auction benefiting hospitality educational programming.
High school students participating in the mentorship program are from the Academy for Technology and Academics. This magnet school receives students from throughout Horry County, who have an opportunity to sample hospitality courses including culinary arts in the middle and early high school years. The college students completing the trio are from the International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach at Horry-Georgetown Technical College.
The Trio Dinner’s purpose is to support and promote the hospitality industry’s culinary arts profession and to give each student real-world experience in creating an original dish with the guidance of an executive chef. This event is very important to the Grand Strand culinary arts programs. A portion of the proceeds of the event go to MBAHA scholarship funds for Hospitality and Culinary education in our local institutions.
In addition to creating wonderful dishes and working with students, chefs will have the opportunity to enter one dish to be judged for the “Best Dish” and “People’s Choice” awards. Knowing chefs are as competitive as they are creative, this allows participating chefs to show off their skills and be recognized for it. We will have a combination of celebrity chef judges and local American Culinary Federation judges for the event.
For more information, call (843) 626-9668. Ticket information is below.

December's Simply Amazing Dish of the Month comes from a restaurant that's new to Front Street in Georgetown.
Owner Jimmy Pronesti's Root only opened less than a month ago and Chef David Cochrane has consistently been putting out great dishes. The award winner is no different.
It's the Beef Short Ribs!
It's red wine-braised and over Anson Mills polenta, roasted root vegetables, gremolata, local greens and gravy. The meat is so moist and succulent, it's cuts with just a fork. And the polenta pairing is just right touch.
Go by Root at 919 Front Street and for the dish by name! It won't disappoint!

Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce holds grand opening for Southern Comforts, Southern Dining & Seafood Shack
Chef and Owner Greg Metcalfe thought he had a day off. The official grand opening of Southern Comforts, Southern Dining & Seafood Shack in the Hammock Shops Village changed that.
For the good, may I add.
More than 25 people braved the cold evening to join in the celebration hosted by the Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce. Not only did the guests get to sample some tasty offerings, they also heard from Metcalfe his plans to open a second restaurant in the previous location. It'll be a tex-mex flavorful explosion.
The restaurant featured today has a 120-seat event center that can host all of your holiday festivities. So, if you are a business trying to decide where to have your Christmas party, this is the spot!
Enjoy the photos from today's grand opening and come experience a great meal!
On the evening of November 29, 2018, some distinct and pleasuring wines offered by Coastal Wine Boutique in the Hammock Shops (with another location in Myrtle Beach) paired with "sweet and savory" tastes from Incredible Edibles in Pawleys Island took customers on a pallet-pleasing cruise of excellent flavors.
Five unique world wines, including the Ukrainian Korolevskoe Shabo semi-sweet red wine, complimented delicious tastes that really matched well.
Enjoy the photos below and stop in either shop to create your own pairing combinations!
Breakfast with Santa 2018 - at Harborside Seafood & Italian Restaurant - sees huge turnout to benefit Miss Ruby's Kids
Even the cancellation of this year's Christmas parade couldn't damper the children's spirit as they walked into Harborside Seafood and Italian restaurant to see and eat breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Clause.
The annual event benefits Miss Ruby's Kids, a nonprofit group enabling vulnerable families and caregivers to inspire a passion for learning in their children. They help prepare parents to be their child’s first, best teacher and support both parents and child throughout the child’s school career.
The number of disadvantaged families and “at risk” children in Georgetown County far exceeds the resources and the reach of Miss Ruby’s Kids. Rather than despair, however, we have taken this condition as a challenge. Our hope and our goal are to increase the number of children and families served by our Home Visitors each year. We can only do this by broadening support for our program throughout the community.
And today's event is just one such way of broadening that support.
Turnout was heavy and all the people who attended were wearing festive smiles and joyful patience as the children waited in line to see Santa and tell him their wishes!
Owner and Chef Christopher Mitchel and his staff continuously outdo themselves with each event. The breakfast, consisting of pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, hot chocolate with marshmallows and apple and orange juice, did not disappoint.
We hope you enjoy the photos from this year's Breakfast with Santa and ask you consider donating to Miss Ruby's Kids this Christmas.
