Bathing suits, bare feet and the smell of jasmine while running through a backyard sprinkler.
Summer weekends involve iced water-melon, Lowcountry boils, grilled hot dogs and ice cold Sangria. Check out our From the Cellar featuring four simple and delicious summer drinks for any patio party. Let us not forget the sides as we bring you Holly Herrick’s Vidalia Onion Tart and Granddaddy Lambert’s Grand Pimento Cheese.
Lastly, we all know that any respectable Southern cook-out has an abundance of sweets. Join us in our Community Table for our Eat This! cake walk of fame-the most notable desserts in the Lowcountry. If you head out to Folly beach, be sure to stop by Rita’s Seaside Grille for some of Anthony DiBernardo’s watermelon nachos. If you decide to head out of town, fuel up at Xiao Bao Biscuit before you go, our Dine or Dash feature . We say DINE and then dash towards LEON’s Full Service in Decatur, Georgia as we launch our premier series, On the Road, for all of you curious foodie travelers.
The dog days of summer are upon us. Look for bartender and owner, Lesley Carroll of The Tin Roof and her Lucky Puppy food truck for cold refreshing treats for you and your furry friends. Find your ohm with artist, yoga instructor and McCrady’s server extraordinaire, Michelle Seay, our Server Spotlight.
I hope that you enjoy reading this issue as much as we enjoyed making it. With sangria, pint bill politics, she crab soup, desserts galore, and much more — Eat This! has dedicated ourselves to celebrating the season.
