The Grocery may be located in Charleston, South Carolina, but that doesn’t mean its cuisine is restricted to what the Palmetto State has to offer. The cozy, warm-toned restaurant serves dishes that utilize ingredients from across the region in exciting and new ways. With a philosophy that recognizes the history behind ingredients, the kitchen turns out meals that let those ingredients shine. The menu will comfort you with classics like oysters and chicken breast joined by spicy sauces and savory salads.
Even better, fare at The Grocery varies by season to utilize the freshest produce, so be prepared for a delicious meal that's driven by what's freshest. Head to the bar for a glass of albariño or Willamette pinot. Or, indulge in creative cocktails that give nods to Southern staples, from green tomatoes to sweet tea. Between the innovative drinks, variety of seafood, and intimate setting, this Holy City delight is worth a special occasion.
