Black Friday? Anymore if you watch TV, its Black Everyday. Almost like the entire advertising market of the US is convinced 75% of the people who buy things are African-Americans. Actually, blacks comprise about 17% of the entire US population, but I guess somehow they figure that using black models has a universal appeal, regardless of what social studies indicate. But what the hey, if it makes Obama and the powers that be feel good, isn't that all that really matters? Economy be damn.
My comment was a compliment. A pure, innocent compliment.
Reason ur comment was deleted.....postell, personal friend of ownership of CP. Censorship is ironic, coming from such a "liberal, free speech" paper, isn't it??
Southerly is a very nice setting but overall is very expensive without being special. The menu is casual, so you're better off going to a casual place for it. The setting is formal, so you'll be let down by the quality of the food.
However, it is a very nice place to meet someone for drinks before dinner elsewhere.
Note: I don't work in food service at all, at least not in the last 15 years, since that's apparently a disqualifier for having an opinion about Southerly.

The Sheriff, I never assumed anything. I only said that I hoped you had no connection to Mozzo. They are good people, and I wouldn't want one bad apple there to ruin the bunch. Your literary skills are very lacking, and it isn't really just a spelling thing. By the way, your website does not prove that you are a food writer. In fact, it shows more poor writing, which would be rather unattractive to any professional publication.
I am not sure how you can say I am biased. I already claimed Mozzo was wonderful. I also enjoy the selection of meats and cheeses at the deli in Southern Season. No experienced food lover could truly hate a place that offers Jamon Iberico.
brewengineer - there is no spell check hereon. You too make assumptions about how many experiences I have had. Can only write so much hereon. No exaggerations were made. If you wish to eat at The Southerly and the companion Southern Season Deli -- enjoy yourself and the costly bill. You have shown your bias -- but hey -- your opinion too is allowed hereon. Amazing how neither you nor Matthew O'Leary did not assume I am an investor or employee of Okra Grill. Neither of you are too brilliant. I stand on my opinion. Okra Grill and Mozzo outstrip Southern Season for value & quality. Both are owned & led by local folks while Southern Season is owned by out of town private equity firms.
Matthew O'Leary - The Sheriff is not a Mozzo employee. He is me. Roger Elliott. My bio is found at RogerSElliott.com. Also, I am not an investor in Mozzo. You made a bad assumption.
I will have to try it but it will be hard to beat EVO. And at EVO you can substitute or add ingredients at will.
Heard it is the Best...from a maniac pizza eater...
Good pizza. I mean. It's no Ellio's from the box in my freezer, but. Still decent.
Meanwhile, turkeys are 59 cents a pound at Publix. Just saying.
The Sheriff, you write culinary reviews, yet base your review on one experience. That seems like a poor way to establish an opinion on a business. No professional writer would post exaggerations, as you have on CCP. I would also expect a professional writer to post comments and reviews on here using proper grammar and punctuation. I really hope that you don't work for Mozzo, because you are making them look bad.
"*Chicago Style is a casserole, not a pizza"
Hahaha! As an ex-Chicagoan, and also as someone who has lived in Italy, I have to agree.
-And using a fork and knife is only acceptable with Neapolitan Pizza.*
*Chicago Style is a casserole, not a pizza
First: John Chitwood, would it ever be possible for some clowns like you to let the rest of the world you cannot stay on subject? This is not the place for a political rant about freedom...etc.. Go to some other site to bore us.
Second: My mother, who was 86 at her death, says sweet tea was a regular in her home as a child, and her mother, born in the late 1800's, said they had "sweet tea" in their homes. So, it has been around a long time. Whether or not you put the sugar in while it is hot, or add it later, is inconsequential. It is still sweet tea. And unless someone else in the country can prove they raised tea successfully before it was done in Summerville, then we can claim we invented it first. And if it gets folks in here to see the town as a tourist site, the more the merrier. Most "first" are claimed with a whole lot less proof.
Matthew O'Leary - sorry I am not an employee of Mozzo. I am a retired military officer who resides in Charleston Metro Area, write culinary reviews for 2 out of town magazines, no am not emotional about Southern Season - - just flat-out honest about a non-edible sandwich ripoff, yes have been a patron of Mozzo which offers far better quality & value !!!.
The Sheriff is clearly a Mozzo's employee.
What we can agree on, though, is that our locally originated Firefly was the first sweet tea vodka, yes?
Yea, why let a little thing like "facts" stand in the way of using history for profit? As a historian, and an educator, I find the willful manipulation of history to support an economic endeavor to be troublesome at best. If the fundamental origin of the "sweet tea trail" is based on poor history, then what about the rest of the "history" on the tour? Summerville has some very unique and real history, and marketing a "Sweet Tea Trail" could still have been done without inventing a history that does not exist.
