The prayers of James Islanders were answered when Heart Woodfire Kitchen opened up last year, bringing thoughtfully prepared food at reasonable prices to a woefully underserved island. As the name suggests, the heart of this James Island restaurant is a big wood-fired oven and rotisserie grill, which adds a crispy kiss to flatbreads topped with roasted chicken and pecan pesto or mushroom, ricotta, and escarole, and a smoky touch to four-cheese pasta with tomato cream sauce and a splendid stew of wood-roasted vegetables sprinkled with lemon yogurt and almonds. On the weekends, brunch has become a local favorite with great choices like pork chili verde with grits and two eggs or a crispy Keegan-Filion pork benedict. No wonder James Island loves this place. —Stephanie Barna Dish (Winter 2013)
