We love Rustic Table in Pawleys Island! Did you know Chef Adam Kirby owns another restaurant? We did and we thought you ought to as well.
Bistro 217 is Kirby's first eatery and it was far past time for a revisit. And, not to any surprise, the elegance of fine dining with a comforting atmosphere was still prevalent.
Excellent appetizers savored tonight were the Steamed P.E.I. Mussels (shallot, garlic, parsley, white wine broth, grilled homemade bread), She Crab Soup, Artisan Cheese Board and Petite Crab Cakes.
Entrees ordered were two of the specials: Snapper and Halibut. The halibut was pecan encrusted. Tasted awesome. Other entrees included were the Grilled Filet Mignon w/Seared Shrimp (certified Angus Beef filet mignon, creamed spinach, gruyere potato cake, Russian tarragon béarnaise) and
the Pan-Seared Lobster, Shrimp & Scallops (sundried tomatoes, scallions in parmesan béchamel over fettuccine).
As for dessert, click the button below and find the dessert menu. Use it to guess what we had! We'll spoil one and let you know it was the "chocolate" bomb! LOL
Attention to detail and spot-on service was the norm for tonight. Even got to see the chef gather his troops to outline the specials for tonight and it was like a class session were students wanted to show up and learn. You could see the excitement in the wait staff's faces.
Enjoy the photos as much as we enjoyed the dishes. Better yet, go and have some of what we had and share your photos in our group (click)!
Last Saturday was an incredible day for Nancy Knarr. The owner of Incredible Edibles has an extensive history in dropping jaws and pleasing taste buds with her wedding cakes. She and her team have been at for more than 20 years. Timing's everything, though. And it was time to spoil the masses with those awesome pastry edibles.
Knarr, Pastry Chef Heather Angus and Head Decorator Miriela Ross held a grand opening for their retail shop. The excitement could barely be contained in the elegant shop that day. It was truly an epic and gorgeous event.
Guests were greeted with free cupcakes and sweet smiles. You could feel the humbleness in the air as all involved made sure everyone was having a great time. A gentleman by the name of Angel was a Godsend. He really made you feel like you were back in time, where you were treated like royalty when coming into the town's bakery.
As I sat and enjoyed a cupcake, I could hear Nancy welcoming more people as they came through the door. Her low, comforting voice made you want to stay a while. And we did.
The after-hours grand opening party had quite a few well wishers show up. All the time and effort put into that day was well worth it. People came to show their support and walked away with, well, some incredible edibles.
And you can, too. Tell them we sent you. They'll love to see you!
Stopped in to see Mike and Allison! Geez, were they busy. Almost every top was full, even outside. That's the best business, though.
While I was there, a group of ten with some from New York told Mike that the pizza they had was the best ever... even compared to ones in New York. Wow!
See the photos. Eat the food. Tell Mike and Allison we sent you. Enjoy!
Before Southern Comforts Restaurant, Bakery & Bar moves to The Hammock Shops this month, I had to stop in, eat and chat it up with Chef and Owner Greg Metcalfe. Both the conversation and food were excellent!
Greg was just coming from the new location where he'd been checking on status of remodeling when he came up to the table. Bright smile, warm hug and happy as can be. He's like a kid in a candy store. The difference is it's his candy store and he can't wait to have you come in!
He talked a few minutes about renovations, new menu items and how excited he was to branch out. From there, he checked on a few other table tops with customers and was off into the kitchen.
The appetizers had were the Grilled Quesadilla - with added chicken, Greg's Homemade Chili and "Chowda" that had lots of crab and shrimp simmered with vegetables in a sherry cream sauce. The chili was as unique as it was flavorful. The cup full made you wish you had the bowl. Loved the "Chowda" as it was truly fresh. The quesadilla was packed full of chicken and cooked perfectly.
Entrees included were the Pawleys Island Burger - about as big as Pawleys Island itself, Slow Roasted Bourbon Pork and the Fresh Local Grouper.
Greg prides himself in shopping local. Couldn't say enough good things about Independent Seafood, where he gets his seafood for the restaurant.
I hope he keeps the pork on the new menu. It truly was good with every bite! The grouper was in fact fresh. Seasoned with a little heat and one of the best had so far.
The dinner was fantastic and I hope the photos below invite you to try their new location opening very soon in The Hammock Shops.
We recently did a story on the sneak peek of Incredible Edible's retail shop and hope you're excited for the grand opening July 21st. Owner Nancy Knarr sure is!
Nancy, along with Pastry Chef Heather Angus, are ready to show scores of people what they have already been famous for - making incredibly good sweet treats. More than 20 years experience in making special event cakes, treats and wedding cakes, the time came to let others experience the adventure of walking inside a shop and getting some, well, incredible edibles!
Here's an exclusive sneak peek of what we picked up. Enjoy.
Tonight was the first night of me donning a "Georgetown Foodland" t-shirt at a local restaurant. What better place to do so than Quigley's Pint & Plate.
Located at 257 Willbrook Blvd. in Pawleys Island, Quigley's Pint & Plate is known for being the only brewery in the area. Eight beers are always on tap at Quigley’s and fresh beer is available "to-go" in half-gallon growlers.
Chef and Co-Owner Josh Quigley bounces between here and BisQit, another popular restaurant in Pawleys Island, known for their uniquely created burgers and milkshakes. Co-Owner Billy Davis can be found in his place, making sure all the details are perfectly met. Billy actually sat us this evening!
Josh is a cool, laid back dude and I really enjoy seeing him when I get the chance. He is passionate about the food, restaurants, industry and the community he lives in.
And this dinner would be no different in regards to presentation and taste.
The Black-Eyed Pea Hummus is a must when starting out. The locals crave this. It's flavorful - compared to what hummus usually tastes like - and the grilled pita bread its served with compliments the offering.
The Southern Brewers Chili! Wow. Just a cup of this lucious, comforting dish will have you asking for a gallon of it. The brown ale really makes a difference in a positive way.
And who doesn't love cheese that's flashed until it's crispy cheese? The Bacon Cheese Fries also oh so good!
Entrees were the specials offered. The All American Burger - with chili - was such a great choice. You'll see in the photos how massive it was. Just enough to not outdo those bisQit burgers! Flavored well and cooked to order. The Grouper with a scallop on top and served with a vegetable succotash was perfect. Fish wasn't dry and it was cooked just right. Sauce made it sparkle like the 4th of July. The entrees were like experiencing a firework show all over again, this time your tastebuds were the guests of honor.
Dessert was, well, pluff mud. No, not the actually stuff, but a Pluff Mud Pie with a coffee mousse. It was literally the best way to top off an evening. Light and sweet, but not overly sweet. Hint of coffee flavor where the chocolate sauce blended for a great taste.
Enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed the food.
And, by all means, eat at Quigley's Pint & Plate!
After having the beef brisket sliders and shrimp & grits at this year's Tastes at Pawleys, I had to go try Coastal Dish Lowcountry Dining. Located in the Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort where Webster's called home, the ambiance and decor would be familiar. It's the menu, however, that'll surprise you.
I couldn't get enough of the Coastal Nachos. The BBQ chicken was so good on those cheesy nachos. The Chicken Fried Bacon with Pepper Gravy is a crowd favorite, too!
The Coastal Burger was fresh and flavorful. Juicy beyond belief. If you want some tender brisket - as in what was offered on those sliders - order the Low Country BBQ platter. It comes with slow-roasted beef brisket, pulled pork, served with coleslaw and fries. The pulled pork was also great!
And the Shrimp & Grits... Definitely a crowd pleaser. The smokiness hits you in the first bite. The smoked bacon and tomato butter sauce is unique for this dish and really compliments the shrimp!
Enjoy the photos below and go visit Coastal Dish Lowcountry Dining. Tell'em Georgetown Foodland sent you!
