Leon's Oyster Shop is north of downtown on a stretch of north King Street near I26. Leon's bills itself as a poultry and oyster shop, with a lunch menu that features raw and grilled oysters, fried chicken, and casual small plates and sandwiches.
Sullivan's Island for lunch at another cool new restaurant, The Obstinate Daughter. Having hung out a bit at Folly Beach the past few years, it was good to check out another beach community only 20 minutes from downtown Charleston. I like Sullivan's and may be spending more time there in the future.
John's Island and topped with spicy, pickled okra.
Sea Island pea cassoulet with duck confit, poached egg, and sausage.
