After landing a place on Esquire's list of "Best New Restaurants," Carter's Kitchen just won over Patricia Agnew at Charleston Magazine. Her review of the I'On spot was glowing, praising the warm staff, dishes like shrimp pappardelle and lamb chops and the desserts by WildFlour Pastry's Lauren Mitterer. She also swooned about their greens.
Salads are not to be missed, with favorite baby kale Caesar at the top of the list. The unique blend of tender, lightly dressed greens tossed with herbed crumbs and shaved Parmesan has created a loyal following for this interesting rendition of the classic, even among the toughest kale skeptics.
All of this buzz comes as Charleston awaits Carter's forthcoming venture, the delayed Rutledge Grill situated in Wagener Terrace. Hit up the tipline if you have any updates.
