Pick up rosy salami and mortadella studded with pistachios, or get a sandwich—perfect for a picnic in Hampton Park—such as the Porchetta, a glorious pile of pulled pork, 'nduja, and cracklins on ciabatta.
Known for inventive sandwiches such as Pimiento Grilled Cheese with pickled okra and candied peanuts on ciabatta, this BYOB spot on Upper King serves lunch and then re-opens for the late-night crowd (until 2 a.m.).
The menu at this 16 seat diners' hideaway, located in a two-story 1835 house, showcases classic French fare through the pantry of the Lowcountry. It changes daily and is about as tiny as the space (two appetizer, entrée, and dessert options each).
Order the Fried Chicken Skins with hot sauce and honey; The Husk Burger, quite possibly the finest example of a hamburger in the South; and a side of skillet cornbread with Allan Benton’s bacon. Oh, and the veggie plate. Honestly, this is the perfect opportunity to #ordereverything.
Though the wood-fired pizzas and pastas conjure Italy, Jacques Larson relies mightily on the flavors of the Lowcountry. Oyster mushrooms from the nearby Mepkin Abbey join earthy kale and a runny Sea Island egg under shards of Parmesan.
Here, it's all about everyday eating done well. From a salad of roasted cauliflower with hazelnuts to the exemplar of fried egg sandwiches, restaurateur Karalee Nielsen delivers locally-sourced food without the farm-to-table luxury tax.
