Best Use of Cinnamon Cinnamon

Chili Dusted Sea Scallops, Graze

Staff Pick

Much like Mt. Pleasant’s Bacco, Graze is one of those East Cooper restaurants that’s every bit as good as downtown’s offerings. With a genre-jumping mix of plates — Asian, Mexican, American, Italian — Graze could easily be dismissed as a restaurant that doesn’t know what it is, but rest assured, chef-owner Michael Karkut and company know exactly who they are, and what they are is really damn good. They not only serve up a much-raved about mac ‘n’ cheese dish — the appropriately named Award-Winning Pulled Pork and Collard Green Mac N Cheese — they offer another one, a lobster mac ‘n’ cheese, that is every bit as good. This year, however, we got turned on to their Cinnamon Chili Dusted Sea Scallops. Seriously, cinnamon on seafood served with a sweet potato and brown butter pancake, sauteed tiny green beans, Granny Smith apple, onion, and pancetta compote? You will not be disappointed. —Chris Haire
