Housed in a restored 19-century general store on charming Pitt Street, the Old Village Post House now belongs in the Hall Management Group’s portfolio, retaining much of the allure that has made it a popular Mount Pleasant outpost for downtown and East Cooper diners alike. The white beadboard walls and dark pine floors of the dining room make an elegant but cozy setting, while the tavern room, with its brown leather chairs, is a comfortable spot for casual cocktails. Executive Chef Frank Lee and Chef Forrest Parker apply a European sensibility to fresh Southern ingredients. The seasonal menu emphasizes fresh and locally-available ingredients, including crab stuffed flounder served alongside Lowcountry shrimp and yellow squash flavored with herb butter or a peach salad with spinach, radishes, goat cheese, sherry honey vinaigrette, and pecans. And remember to watch for intriguing combinations on the vegetable plate (jumbo asparagus, sweet corn, okra, green beans, grilled tomato), and excellent versions of Lowcountry favorites, like crab cakes and shrimp and grits, round out an impressive dining offering. —Sam Spence Dish, Winter 2016
