Our Southern summer has produced an ample harvest from our local farms, and Chef Brandon Buck has found fresh finds to create a feast. You can’t miss the opportunity to try quail mixed with organic veggies, and a meal wouldn’t be complete without a pork belly course from Heritage Farms. This is all enhanced by our local brew masters from Holy City creating summer seasonal beers to pair with your meal. Join us to celebrate the tastes of summer with music by Graham Whorley this Sunday evening, August 23rd, for the second annual Hot Nights & Holy City Dinner!

Stereo2Stereo 8 popped up on my open table page and I had to check it out.  The owners did a facelift to the property with their own hands and ideas, and it looks amazing.  From the cargo container patio seating to the cool paintings directly on the wall and a fire pit that will be perfect this fall, this place feels good to be in. You can hear the love and focus on music through the great variety streaming out of the speakers.  The sound and layout make the perfect palette to put your palate to the test with food influences from Asia and Latin America and of course a Charleston flavor backbone to it all.   Our hostess was warm and efficient, and our server had the menu down and was on top of the wine and cocktail offerings. The menu is all over the board, and once they find the winners and lock it down, the place will be hitting its stride and winning the races.  Good atmosphere, very attentive service.  Do not miss out on the wine flight option, crispy rock shrimp taco, and lamb kefta.
