The Lot, Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas, covering the food and restaurant scene across North and South Carolina.

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, The Lot at 7:30 p.m. on a Saturday.

Passers-by, not paying attention, could easily miss The Lot, saddled next to music venue The Pour House. The farm friendly restaurant is somewhat of a secret among the culinary cognosceti of Charleston. Those in the know head to James Island for chef Alex Lira's innovative creations for dinner and brunch.

It's a laid-back atmosphere with high-end food. Some recent specials involve a bavette steak with crispy potatoes and mushroom ragout or grilled mackerel aside a cannellini bean salad. The menu is chalked on a board so that items may change nightly to reflect the changing products from local producers. Servers impressively recite the 10-12 plates tableside for guests.

Since there a few of you that may have yet to discover The Lot, Eater sent photographer Rebecca Gallagher to view the scene on a recent Saturday night.
