Look for the flickering gas lanterns over garden green French doors on Spring. Cannon Green’s elegant interior feels like a posh garden patio that floods with sun by day and flickers with romantic votives by night. Chef Amalia Scatena trained in Florence, Italy, and brings an international sensibility (she’s been channeling Mexico recently) to Lowcountry classics, with plenty of local sourcing. From lighter dishes like shrimp escabeche, a blend of avocado, crunchy jicama, grapefruit, and crispy yucca, to the more indulgent buttermilk fried quail, the artfully plated dishes mirror their contemporary surroundings. With dishes like lavender French toast, blue corn and lobster hushpuppies, and poached duck eggs over grits, Cannon Green offers one of the more creative brunches in town. —Allston McCrady Dish (Summer 2015)
