Happy Birthday to Us!

Happy Birthday to Us!

This past Wednesday, The Local Palate celebrated our one year anniversary of being the food culture of the South with a lovely soiree on the newly renovated second floor of Fish restaurant in downtown Charleston. The room was buzzing with food-lovers sipping on champagne and munching on delicious bites from Chef Nico Romo. That Romo knows his dim-sum!

We care so much about our region and feel very fortunate that there are so many incredible culinary happenings in the South. It makes our job fun, educational, and, most of all, delicious! Having the chance to gather together so many of the people who contribute to The Local Palate into one space was such a treat. Eating our way through the South is all the more enjoyable due to the wonderfully kind people we’ve met along the way. Certainly, Randall and Jennifer Goldman of Patrick Properties are two such individuals. Their offer to throw us this birthday party is one example of how the Southern culinary community is remarkable in its generosity. Indeed, our past year is filled with examples of people surprising us with their stories, their talents, and their kindness. All was on display at our birthday party.

If you missed it, well we’ll just have to find another time to dine together. Rest assured that we will; the magazine is an ever-evolving adventure and we sure are hungry for more experiences in the months to come. We hope they’ll involve you.

Cheers to TLP for turning one! Now, let’s get started with the BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival!
