Right Across the Street from the Midtown Development
Executive chef and owner Kevin Johnson has opened The Grocery in downtown Charleston. A veteran of such restaurants as Slightly North of Broad, Anson Restaurant and the Inn at Little Washington, Johnson is serving seasonal, ingredient-inspired cuisine with Mediterranean and Southern American influences. The Grocery’s atmosphere is inspired by the small-town grocery, where the community gathered to keep up with local happenings. The Grocery’s kitchen is stocked with house-made charcuterie and fresh, local fish and seafood, and the restaurant accommodates an in-house canning program to preserve fresh vegetables and fruits for the menu.
The Grocery’s menu encourages the community; diners can sample and share several small or large plates from the continually evolving menu. Menu highlights include fried oysters with deviled egg sauce and bread-and-butter pickles; bouillabaisse of fish, clams, shrimp and squid with grilled bread and aioli; and pork osso buco served with a ragout of Sea Island red peas and cornbread.
The Grocery is located at 4 Cannon St. and is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday starting at 5 p.m. For more information, visit www.thegrocerycharleston.com or call 843-302-8825. Also, follow The Grocery on Facebook or Twitter.
