The gist: Out on Sullivan’s Island lurks one of Charleston's best restaurants: the Obstinate Daughter. Chef Jaques Larson helms the kitchen, where Southern food is influenced by Spanish, French, and Italian flavors—plus a wood fired oven that slings epic pizza.
The food: The biggest challenge is what not to order, as everything is majorly tempting. The Shrimp Roll and Peel n’ Eat Shrimp will never lead you wrong, but save room for housemade pasta and don’t sleep on the specials. As for pizza, the Old Danger, topped with pancetta, egg, scallion, white sauce, mozzarella, parmesan, and black pepper, is something you’ll think about long after the bill is settled. Weekend brunch consists of festive morning standards like skillets, Eggs in Purgatory, and Beet-cured Salmon, and are best paired with one of the many epic Italian wines by the glass.
How to book: Reserve via Resy.
