4 courses. 4 wine pairings. $55. Yes, really.

In case you didn't already know, we're proud supporters of the Sustainable Seafood Initiative. Basically, that means we are all about promoting wise seafood choices and the consumption of environmentally friendly, locally harvested seafood.

Every now and again, we get an itch to celebrate our commitment to sustainability with the good folks at the South Carolina Aquarium. So, on Wednesday, January 30, we're playing host to a Sustainable Seafood Dinner. That's right. Four courses, four wine pairings, $55 per person, prepared by our very own Chef Nico. The menu features an impressive array of local, fresh seafood. It all kicks off at 6:30 pm for (a welcome and a homemade, infused cocktail.) Dinner is served at 7. I can promise you are not going to find this caliber of food AND wine AND cocktails for this price anywhere else. Oh, and space is extremely limited. Go on. Punch in those numbers: 843.722.FISH.
