Welcome to our photo series Eater Scenes, where Eater photographers visit some of the city's great restaurants to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. Today, Wild Olive at 7:30 p.m. on a Saturday.
Italian staple Wild Olive opened in 2009 on Johns Island and has since become a destination for classic house-made pasta dishes, intriguing entrees utilizing local ingredients and fresh small plates. The place gets absolutely packed on the weekends and even stays busy during the week with a $19 wine list on Mondays and Tuesdays. Chef Jacques Larson and his team will soon open a second venture on Sullivan's Island, The Obstinate Daughter.
Before the crowds start lining up for the new place, Eater thought it would be good to examine the original. Here is a look at the restaurant at 7:30 p.m. on a recent Saturday, as seen through the lens of Eater Charleston photographer Rémy Thurston.
