863 Houston Northcutt Blvd. , Whole Foods Shopping Center (Mt. Pleasant)
Lunch, Dinner, & Sun. Brunch
Creative casual cuisine that encompasses the farm-to-table ethos.
Graze is a clear cut standby for many Mt. Pleasant residents and outsiders should take should take note. Chef/Owner Michael Karkut offers a unique blend of down-home favorites — lobster mac and cheese, shrimp and grits, and cornflake-crusted catfish with butterbeans, sweet corn, and hominy succotash — with more creative dishes like cinnamon-chili-dusted sea scallops with a sweet potato and brown butter pancake, sauteed green beans, and apple, onion, and pancetta compote. There’s some Asian flair too. As is the case with the spicy tuna tatiki with “firecracker” mayo and the Korean beef bulgogi. The lunch menu brings about a New England lobster roll and a duck confit B.L.T., and brunch shouldn’t be missed. Chicken and waffles with a side of duck fat sweet potato hash browns, anyone? Luckily for those further up I-26, Graze 2.0 is slated to be open any day now. It’s only a matter of time before Summerville deems Graze a local favorite too. —Eric Doksa Dish (Winter 2015)
jackiern says... Went for lunch today and was really pleasantly surprised! The food was delicious. The menu has so many great options, I had a hard time choosing. The decor is very modern and appealing. Service was outstanding. Overall I was really impressed and can't wait to go back. It is nice to have something in Mt. Pleasant that could compete with any downntown restaurant. ★★★★★
eatingout says... Absolutely one of the best restaurants in Mt Pleasant. Great menu, fantastic wine pricing, great service and modern decor. Go try this place, you will not be dissapointed. We went back on a weeknight, as last weekend there was a long wait at 9pm, and now I can see why. ★★★★★
kris7 says... Great food. Great staff. Great atmosphere. Went here for dinner and plan on trying the lunch menu soon. ★★★★★
I feel pretty confident saying this, but I eat more kimchi than any other cracker ass cracker in town. For me, it's not just a playful garnish on the plate. It's a frikkin' staple. So take it from this kimchi lover, Graze in Mt. Pleasant serves up a rock solid kimchi stew. This hot and spicy and slightly sour soup is perfect for a blustery winter day.
