Drawing Room

 We often scurry to enjoy The Rooftop at Vendue Inn but we have all been missing out on what a gem lies just downstairs, the Drawing Room Restaurant.  

A friend of ours invited us to dinner and chef Jon Cropf made sure it was extra special.  

19 Vendue Range
Charleston, SC 29401
843-414-2334







Radishes with whipped butter...


Beets with duck prosciutto and smoked goat cheese...





Tartar of venison with pork cracklings and capers...


One of my favorite dishes, cream of lettuce...  


Incredible cornbread...





Beignets filled with custard, brandied fruit, and foie gras...


Fresh bean salad with mint...



Chef Jon Cropf deserves a round of applause.  What an incredible talent!


Chef with my friend Tammi of @gracesandgrits


Just when you thought you were full, sweetened carrot...


Carrot cake...


Olive oil cake with sweetened ricotta...



Then boom, this piece of art was set in front of us with it's own strawberry pour.  To achieve that beautiful precise sliver, the strawberry gelatin was cut with razorblades... amazing!






What a special night and nice treat! Thank you chef Jon and sweet Tammi!

This Valentine's Day we brunched at Barony Tavern.  They've recently done some renovating and I wanted to check out the food...












We ordered the butternut squash ravioli and the classic reuben... delish!

Folly Gras and Lost Dog Cafe

Folly Gras 2015 went like this....








This year Folly Gras 2016 will be Saturday, February 6th.  One of our favorite brunch spots on Folly is Lost Dog Cafe.  We grabbed a bite to eat before the parade.

















The parade is just a short walk from Lost Dog Cafe...






























Until next time, we will see you at Folly Gras, Folly Beach!
