Lana Restaurant, a cozy, intimate escape at the corner of Rutledge Avenue and Cannon Street, is the insider’s choice for a great downtown meal. Chef/owner John Ondo’s eclectic menu blends fresh local ingredients with flavors and techniques from around the Mediterranean. Housemade pasta and pillowy gnocchi are tossed with tomatoes, olives, and capers or wild mushrooms and pancetta. Fresh shrimp, scallops, and mussels star in the Frutti di Mare, while a duo of duck breast and leg confit and pan-roasted Basque chicken bring bright, hearty flavors. The happy hour tapas menu, which ranges from marinated olives and sliced ham to lamb kefta and potato croquettes, provides many fine accompaniments to a glass of good wine. With a stylish setting and impeccable fish specials, Lana always impresses. —Robert Moss Dish (Winter 2013)
Chef John Ondo's Mediterranean-inspired meals are simultaneously elegant and comforting. "Lana is one of the hidden gems in Charleston's rich dining world" —Robert Moss.
