While it would betray any journalistic integrity for me to review any of the dishes at my own restaurant, I can certainly promote whatever special happenings I feel like. So as of last Wednesday, South City Kitchen Midtown (and Vinings as well) is celebrating a Taste of the Low Country, featuring both traditional and interpretive dishes from the South Carolina low country. So pick up a Pat Conroy novel and prepare yourselves for some of Gullah's finest.
