Balao: Rooftop Views & All the Seafood – Featuring Cookin’ With Booze

Read More

By Featured Charleston Food Blogger Cookin’ With Booze

Charlestonians are suckers for two things: seafood and rooftops. Balao is catering to these needs by serving their dynamic menu on a beautiful rooftop deck. Dynamic is almost an understatement, because they change their menu daily to ensure ultimate freshness. It’s so exciting that you could go back to Balao 3 days in a row and have a different experience every time. Now that the weather is warming up, Balao is going to be the new hotspot to enjoy fresh seafood paired with refreshing cocktails.

Must-try dishes

Ceviche

 

I’ve had many versions of ceviche in Charleston, and I have to say that Balao’s is one of my favorites. The fish was tender, the lime juice added a brightness, and the jalape?o was sliced so thin that it added the perfect amount of spice to each bite. It was served with chips that were seasoned with spices besides salt (why don’t more people do that?) and they were a crunchy vehicle to transport as much ceviche into my mouth as possible.

Ahi Tuna Nachos

As you can tell from the photo, these nachos are a show stopper. The earthy and spicy blackened tuna coated in the creamy poblano queso is a bite you won’t soon forget. Italians would not approve of this seafood and cheese mix, but I think if they tasted this dish with a blindfold on, they would be okay with it. Apart from the flavor of the nachos being amazing, there was a great distribution of toppings on each chip. The toppings to chip ratio is important because we all have that one friend who steals all the loaded chips.

Shrimp & Squid Ink Grits

I can already see people skipping over the Shrimp & Grits on the menu because “they’ve had it before,” but DON’T. This shrimp & grits has squid ink grits (to enhance the seafoodiness), duck & tasso ham gravy, sweet Yum Yum peppers (mini bell peppers), and ramps. The grits were creamy, the gravy was smoky and rich, and I wanted to shovel this whole dish into ma pie hole. Try it out, even if you’re a shrimp and grits non-believer.

Cocktails fit for rooftop-sippin’

The Summer Rose

I’m sure all of us have tried and failed to soak a watermelon in alcohol and make it taste good, but Balao figured it out for us. The Summer Rose features pureed, rosé-soaked watermelon, tequila, elderflower, mint, and topped with sparkling rosé. It sounds like it would be really sweet, but the tequila tamped down the sweetness of the watermelon for a refreshing result.

The Irie

Drinking The Irie makes you want to be on a beach in the Caribbean, but Folly will have to do for now. The ingredients practically hit you over the head with their tropicality. There’s spiced rum, coconut water, grilled pineapple, and Falernum. The grilled pineapple garnish is soaked in rum and our server said it was “basically a shot.” They might be making shots a little too delicious over at Balao…

If you’re looking for a switch up from your routine seafood restaurants, check out Balao. The Ahi Tuna nachos alone will convince you to keep coming back.

The Getaway: Light, Bright Bites and Cocktails

Read More

By Cookin’ With Booze – Elise DeVoe

New restaurants are popping up left and right in Charleston, and even though I have barely scratched the surface of visiting the long-established restaurants; one of the new ones usually catches my eye and I have to go check them out (for journalistic purposes). In this case, the Getaway, a Latin American-themed restaurant run by two lady bosses, peaked my interest. They’re answering the call of Charleston locals begging for a break from shrimp and grits and transporting them with bright, authentic cocktails and food from their travels to South America and beyond.? I sat down with the owner Genevieve Mashburn to learn more about the inspiration behind the Getaway and their must-try bites and cocktails.

The Vibes

When you walk into the Getaway, your eyes are drawn to the bar and the shelves bursting with exotic liquors. The setting is intimate with ambient lighting and small tables fit for sharing bites with friends. Although I loved the inside of the Getaway, as the weather warms up I am more drawn toward their patio. They have a movie night out there every Monday, as well as ? off pi?a coladas for fellow F&B folks. Drinking one of their refreshing cocktails while enjoying some sunshine sounds like the perfect way to spend an afternoon.

The food

Executive Chef Emily Hahn is the brains behind the operation in the back of the house, and she is given freedom to create dishes inspired by her travels on a daily basis. Genevieve explained that Chef Emily’s style of cooking was the perfect match for this concept, and she proves it with the food she’s producing.

Usually when I take my first bite of a dish, it takes a second to register the flavors. With the Chilean fish soup, I was immediately hit with the bright, acidic, broth that kept me coming back for more. From the tender shrimp to the crispy crust on the fish, each protein was cooked to perfection. It was served with Chapa bread, which was like biting into a fluffy biscuit, but that biscuit was filled with bread. It was bread-ception people. This dish encapsulated Chef Emily’s style of cooking, which is local, light, bright, and comforting.

The second dish I tried was Chef Emily’s signature empanadas. She is known as the Empanada Mama, so I knew they were going to be authentic and tasty to boot. The fillings of the day were sweet potato and goat cheese and Tamarind Barbecue chicken with saffron rice and peas. The crust on the empanadas was like biting into a flaky and buttery pie; filled with savory goodness. The sweet potato and goat cheese was my favorite of the two because the creamy filling mixed with the crispy crust was a great combination.

Authentic cocktails with a twist

The Getaway has classic cocktails that we all recognize, such as a frozen pi?a colada, but they also have options where you won’t even recognize the names of the liquors. For me, this is exciting because I love learning about new liquors almost as much as I love drinking them!

I decided to try the Davy’s Sail, which was a Gin-based drink with Gran Classico bitters, lime, and coconut water. Their drink menu is seasonal, and this drink was suited for winter with its warm spices from the Gran Classico bitters. Although it was crafted for winter, this drink could carry on into spring because the coconut water lightened up the warm spices, making them subtle and refreshing.

add the getaway to your list!

If you haven’t stopped by The Getaway yet, get yourself over there ASAP. Whether you’re looking for a relaxed atmosphere to get a drink or trying to shake up your usual restaurant routine, they have you covered. They’re bringing their international flavors to Upper King; nestled where you normally wouldn’t find them. Stay tuned because Genevieve and Chef Emily have plans to continue to push the boundaries and represent as lady bosses in the Charleston community.

Location Number Four for Toast’s Cozy, Breakfast All-Day (plus Lunch and Dinner) Where Everyone Knows Your Name Restaurant Brand

Charleston, SC? – January 25, 2018 – Ground broke today for Charleston Hospitality Group’s fourth Toast! location, this one in the family-friendly Nexton community in Summerville. With locations in downtown Charleston, West Ashley, and Old Trolley Road near downtown Summerville, the newest Toast! is scheduled to open in late 2018 or early 2019.

Built from the ground up, CHG’s newest restaurant marks a departure from CEO Sam Mustafa’s usual strategy to buy a pre-existing restaurant/business structure and morph it into the concept he foresees for each space, as he did with the original Toast (formerly Diana’s Tropical Toast) at 155 Meeting Street in 2005.

“This is a rapidly growing community in an already growing, family-focused Summerville. As an immigrant, I’m keenly aware of the American dream. I envision this Toast, as all of the others, as truly a place where people from all walks-of-life feel welcome, like family, and will come and enjoy our food and hospitality and feel completely at home. I see Nexton as the perfect place for our newest Toast!,” says Mustafa.

About Toast! – Often imitated, but never duplicated, Toast is a casual, friendly neighborhood restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner classics like shrimp & grits and French toasts. There are currently three locations: Toast! 155 Meeting Street, downtown, 843.534.0043, Toast of West Ashley, 2026 Savannah Highway, 843.556.0066, and Toast of Summerville, 717 Old Trolley Road, Summerville, 843.900.4422.

The Morgan Creek Grill Experience: A Coastal Delight

Read More

Sponsored

By Mark A. Leon

Charleston is known for great dining, warm weather, cool coastal breezes, waterways and a down home sense of hospitality.? Rarely, does a restaurant embody all these qualities in a truly memorable dining experience like the experience you will have at Morgan Creek Grill on Isle of Palms.? Situated right on the Intracoastal Waterway offering cinematic views of the boats and sunset, Morgan Creek is a haven for locals and tourists alike.? We had an opportunity to spend some time with the staff and enjoy a truly remarkable local meal last week.

Whether you are cozied up on the porch with a Lowcountry Lemonade enjoying a spectacular Western sunset over the Intracoastal Waterway, shucking oysters on the sand while listening to relaxing live music and eating S’mores by the fire pit or enjoying an intimate meal for two, Morgan Creek Grill will make every minute of your stay feel like home.

Get to Know Scot

While you are here, you will surely meet General Manager Scot Goldfarb, who goes out of his way to stop by each table and get to know you.? Once you become a regular, you might even have your favorite table waiting for you upon arrival.? Scot has a comforting demeanor that makes you feel like you have known each other for years and you can just “trust” him.? In fact, Scot was so convincing, he managed to talk me into the Chicken Piccatta served over sour cream mashed potatoes, quoting, “It is one of the top five piccatta dishes I have ever had.”? Given that I was overlooking the water in a seafood themed restaurant and I went the route of Italian Food is a sign of true honesty and trust.? Saying this in true Southern fashion, “by golly, he was right”.

One Can Survive on Starters Alone

I am at liberty to say, that one could stop at the starter dishes and leave content.? With exquisite flavor and presentation, you will fall in love with every bite of the savory options on the

menu.? I cannot speak for all, but give high praise to the Oysters Rockefeller, Charcuterie Board and Seared New Bedford Sea Scallops.? There is a burst of flavor and well-designed combination of compliments to the scallops and oysters that form a rainbow on your palate.? Some restaurants add an artistry to menu preparation and design and Morgan Creek is no exception.? They take pride in taking customer feedback and preparing dishes that are desired by its patrons. We can thank Karnan Devlin, for playing a role in this latest menu creation.? She was recently promoted to executive chef and is proud of the carefully selected items on this current menu.? We want to thank Ian, who was head chef on the evening we dined.? Ian has hailed from a number of great establishments, including Fat Hen.? He understands the importance of partnering with local fisherman and farmers to instill the highest quality of freshness and takes extreme pride in hearing from the customers and took time at the end of the night to talk to us about his role at Morgan Creek Grill.

Seared New Bedford Sea Scallops

Salad or Swordfish

If your stomach is seeking a lighter and healthier fare, Morgan Creek currently offers a Butternut squash, Brussels and Farro salad with a Cranberry Vinaigrette and Roasted Beet Salad with Red and Gold Beets, Whipped Goat Cheese, Candied Pecans and a Champagne Vinaigrette.? The combination of ingredients are sure to be fresh and zesty with flavor.? That salads are tailored to the season and built using local producers.

The entrees are cultivated to offer patrons a fine selection of variety including Ramen Bowl, Grilled Atlantic Salmon, Grilled & Blackened Ribeye, Grilled Porkchop, Sunflower Crusted North Carolina Swordfish, Grilled South Carolina Wreckfish, BBQ Glazed Seared Sea Scallops and a number of local favorites.

If you are torn, we would like to recommend the Shellfish Stew.? This steamy dish includes shrimp, fish, mussels, clams and calamari in a tomato saffron broth.? Of course, for picky coastal patron, you can choose from five fresh catch offerings and prepare your meal just the way you like it.

Something for Everyone

One of the things that truly makes Morgan Creek stand out is its restaurant structure allowing for all types to partake and feel right at home.? The main dining area has the feel of fine dining with dark wooden coastal décor and an intimate setting.? Upstairs you can enjoy a few craft beers or cocktails while watching Saturday football.? The patio is home to the sunset chasers who can lose themselves in the waterway and endless horizon and the sand patio with fire pit and stage speaks for itself hosting an Oyster Roast every Saturday during the season.

Morgan Creek is not just about great food, live entertainment, a gathering place for family and friends, majestic sunsets or a sports bar hang out.? It is about a family feel, right on the water, the way the Lowcountry intended it to be.
