Ben Berryhill, chef/owner of the Red Drum, was one of the early proponents of serving sustainable local fish, and he’s incorporated that into a distinctive South-by-Southwest cuisine that blends the best of Lowcountry ingredients with the flavors and style of Texas. That means grilled South Carolina quail paired with Texas venison sausage atop a skillet of chile cheddar grits. A custom-made wood-burning grill, which Berryhill fires with locally cut oak and pecan, is the centerpiece of the kitchen, adding a dose of smoky char to big steaks and burgers as well as whatever fresh fish was brought in that day. The elegant dining room with white-clothed tables and leather-backed chairs offers formal dinner service, while the big outside patio and bustling bar provide more casual, up-tempo options. The Red Drum’s unique style keeps it among the best dining options around. —Robert Moss Dish (Summer 2014)
