Pork Ton Toro and Peekytoe Crab Cake

Pork Ton Toro and Peekytoe Crab Cake

The Wentworth Mansion, with its Southern grandeur and 21 luxurious rooms, is a Charleston gem. Circa 1886 is located in the old carriage house, but you don’t have stay at the historic mansion to dine there. The building retains much of the original architecture and includes a few intimate rooms that exemplify quiet elegance. Executive Chef Marc Collins focuses on high-quality local ingredients to create light and vibrant dishes. Traditional Lowcountry specialties often appear on the menu, but Collins takes a more modernized approach, resulting in food that is both comforting and elegant. He changes the menu regularly to reflect the seasons, with wintry dishes like cast iron pork shoulder with coconut Carolina gold rice porridge, and maple-glazed salmon with root vegetables, cured salmon hash, and spicy mustard greens. Our only complaint? Each carefully thought-out dish sounds so good that it’s hard to choose what to order. Maybe that’s a good problem to have. —Eric Doksa Dish (Summer 2015)
