Did you know that we have a Master French chef in town; the only one located in South Carolina? And that there are only 65 in the United States, including chef Daniel Boulud and chef Eric Ripert? If that’s not reason enough to dine with chef Nico Romo in a beautifully restored 1837 Charleston single home with an outdoor piazza on Upper King street, then let the menu speak for itself. Classically French preparations with Asian influences allow the locally sourced seasonal ingredients and sustainable seafood to shine. Romo’s famous bouillabaisse preparation gets a slight twist when served in a coconut broth with lemongrass just as the snapper a la plancha comes in a crawfish green curry, or the lobster tail in a miso foie gras beurre blanc over parsnip dumplings with sunchokes and asparagus. Not in the mood for seafood? Then try the tempura fried duck over spring-pea waffle or the 72-hour sous vide short rib with raviolis de royan. Don’t miss the dollar dim-sum for happy hour with tantalizing offerings like tempura fried octopus, duck confit with truffled goat cheese, or crab gougere with truffle emmental. —Katherine Connor Dish (Summer 2015)
