Re: “The State Ports Authority move and what it means for Fleet Landing

So sad for the Newtons...the family trust must not be deep enough for two massive downtown purchases. Get me to the fainting couch!

Re: “The State Ports Authority move and what it means for Fleet Landing

Gotcha, misread it. Wonder why it is a buy A or A&B and not a buy A, buy B or buy both kind of situation.

Re: “A peek at Pancito & Lefty's fire shrimp

According to Berry, the shrimp are brined in salt and citrus zest for 40 minutes, then rinsed and ready to serve. This firms them up and slightly cures them, then they are served in a liquid of citrus juice and chile water.

Re: “Indaco's Kevin Getzewich starts healthy-eating program for students

Its a good idea, but I wonder how many 6 and 7 year-olds can go to Mom and tell her what to give for snacks and she gives it? Perhaps giving a corresponding lesson to a PTA meeting in the same week as meeting with the kids would get a lot more mileage. One of the first lessons in sales is " if you're not dealing with the ultimate decision maker you're just spinning your wheels"

Guys, take it easy on Kinsey. We all know her capabilities by now and she's trying real hard.

"Brine dining" was excellent.

Re: “A peek at Pancito & Lefty's fire shrimp

But it was just too hard to pass up the "Brine Dining" sub title. How cute.

Re: “The State Ports Authority move and what it means for Fleet Landing

Also, that property would be mega-expensive. Why did the Blind Tiger not buy their building? Because a lease is one thing, a multi-million dollar property purchase is another.

Re: “A peek at Pancito & Lefty's fire shrimp

You silly Gringos. Aquachile in the Hispanic culinary world means broth of chile or "literally" watery broth of chile. That bowl looks pretty damn good and I would love to see more of this type of item on a menu and less tacos but I bet that shrimp is marinated "ceviche style" in some lemon, lime or some type of citrus and is not sitting around in salt water (brine) and then plopped in that bowl. Y'all would be kinda thirsty if it was and that shrimp would still be raw. (Brining is fab when grilling shrimp or a quick brine for shrimp cocktail before you broil it )Ceviche is always marinated in a citrus (the acid in the citrus is what "cooks" your seafood) and not "brined". Brined shrimp is different from Ceviche. Good but definitely not the same. So it can be brined but not brined Ceviche Style. Two totally different things. Learn the difference - its important, because if y'all have me over for shrimp dinner, I would like it to be grilled or broiled if brined and not served to me raw and salty.

Re: “A peek at Pancito & Lefty's fire shrimp

"Aguachile" is a combination of "agua," meaning "water," and "chile," meaning... chile. It doesn't mean "fire."

Re: “The State Ports Authority move and what it means for Fleet Landing

nofaith. Dude. The restaurant building isn't offered for sale separately. It's leased for eight years, so the Port Authority might just keep ownership for now.

Re: “The State Ports Authority move and what it means for Fleet Landing

So under the presumption that they are operating successfully why are they not trying to buy the property? They must be getting some kind of sweetheart lease.

Re: “The State Ports Authority move and what it means for Fleet Landing

I agree, the food has gone down hill. My last two visits have been huge disappointments. I won't be back. Fleet use to be COOL and great food. It is now mediocre at best and feels like a tourist destination. I took out of town clients, and I was embarrassed.

Re: “The State Ports Authority move and what it means for Fleet Landing

I used to love Fleet Landing. The last two times I ate there, service was execrable. In what will probably be my last visit, I asked the waitress please not to stack the dishes in front of me while she was busing. She moved the pile to the corner of the table and kept beckoning for people to hand her the plates.
Stacking dirty dishes on the table? Hell, the Waffle House staff at least lines them up along their experienced arms.

Re: “A comprehensive guide to slurping ramen in Charleston

Skip,
The Wich Doctor is great, but it's currently closed while the owner and chef Jeff Butler recuperates from surgery. The restaurant's reopening has yet to be announced. That's why it was excluded from this list.
