I said in my post on McCrady's that the lamb belly there was the best thing I ate all weekend. Well, the crispy oyster dish with beef tartare pictured above is the other best thing I ate all weekend. The mix of hot, crispy, salty oyster with cool, richness of the raw beef was a near perfect taste and texture experience. Pretty to look at as well.
Standish shore oysters from Duxbury, MA. Awesome.
Smoked trout pate with American caviar.
Two Boroughs Larder. Two Boroughs Larder feels like it would be at home in Decatur. Slightly hippie (in all the best ways), the restaurant serves seasonal local cuisine with well-thought out list of wines and beers. There are also specialty pantry items and tableware on the shelves around the space.
On the way out of town we stopped at Hominy Grill for brunch.
Low country omelet with Carolina red rice and shrimp gravy. Was good, but just that, and it was time to get of town anyway. We sure ate well in Charleston; I'm already looking forward to my next visit.
