Hours: Dinner (Mon.-Sat.)
When it comes to romantic fine dining, Circa 1886 at the Wentworth Mansion is about as luxe as you can get. A recent interior design freshened up the restaurant built in the old carriage house space, but the delicate and delightful menu remains. Executive Chef Marc Collins focuses on high-quality local ingredients to create light and vibrant dishes. Traditional Lowcountry specialties often appear on the menu, but Collins takes a more modernized approach, resulting in food that is both comforting and elegant. Where else can you order chicken fried lobster? Or Broken Arrow antelope? One of the best parts of a visit is Circa’s always surprising desserts. Peaches and cream ice cream sandwich, anyone? —Kinsey Gidick (Dish, Winter 2019)
Intriguing cuisine at the Wentworth Mansion. Menu changes regularly based on the seasons and ingredient availability. But the antelope loin is a perennial favorite.
