Hours: Dinner (Tues-Sat.) & Weekend Brunch.
Occupying a space that is at once industrial and inviting, Chef/Owner Kevin Johnson’s menus are seasonally inspired and passionately local. Utilizing a mix of fresh farmed, fished and foraged ingredients, The Grocery exemplifies farm-to-table dining. The Southern cum Mediterranean offerings have included such highlights as fried oysters with deviled egg sauce and bread and butter pickles, as well as lamb meatballs with chickpeas, olives and feta. Year-round standbys include the generous portions of Lowcountry seafood pilau and the changing varieties of roasted whole fish, cooked in the restaurant’s massive wood-burning oven. Along with a celebrated Sunday brunch, The Grocery’s innovative cocktail program features standouts like the dirty green tomato, a martini made with pickled green tomato juice. —Vanessa Wolf (Dish, Winter 2018)
