Local food at its finest―homegrown, organic, and delicious. Chef Sean Brock is so dedicated to quality control he and the staff tend to a farm daily to biodynamically raise 21⁄2 acres of vegetables and a posse of pigs. “We start the day playing with tractors, and then we come here and play with the food,” says the ruddy-faced Sean. We like the bar area, which used to be part of an alleyway, with alcove table seating crafted from converted horse stables.
Don’t Miss the charcuterie platter. There really wasn’t anything that didn’t elicit a “Wow, you have to try this!” but Sean’s selection of house-cured meats (salami, coppa, soppressata) is a porcine dream. 2 Unity Alley; www.mccradysrestaurant.com or (843) 577-0025
