Having met both Jay and Nicole and having visited this restaurant I feel that I must comment. The restaurant is quaint with flowers on the tables, a fine wine selection, and cute China plates and jars for glasses. It has that down home feel with a New York elegance. Even better than the atmosphere was the food! It was truly southern and I believe that Chef Jay and Nicole have taken the best out of what Charleston has to offer and turned it into cuisine that reminds you of home cooking, but has a certain quality that you'd never be able to prepare yourself.
As for the comment about going back to New York? I must only shake my head. Ignorance is the downfall of the south, and I may speak of that because my family has lived here for many generations, having owned several plantations and other such things. A redneck who may not even truly understand the Civil War would be expected to make such comments however a true southerner can overlook what is now Ancient history and embrace and diversity.
Chef Jay and Nicole, on behalf of me and many other South Carolinians, we welcome you to Charleston, SC and hope that you are able to enjoy all of the beautiful things that this state has to offer. We are honored that you chose to make our home yours and wish you and your restaurant the best of luck!
