Pawpaw Delivers Southern Refinement on East Bay Tonight

Check it out

This evening, Wednesday, December 21, at 5:00 p.m., Charleston will see what happens when a big name restaurant group takes over a former grain alcohol-soaked space and tries to give it some class. That’s right, Pawpaw from the Pinot Group (Amen Street and Stars) premieres this evening at the address that was once Wet Willies. The menu from chef Jared Rogers will be Southern small plates, handmade pastas, and wood-fired local ingredients. Look for hush puppies with lemon-dill dipping sauce, pecan-smoked salmon with toast points, capers, and remoulade, shrimp and grits with crispy okra, bacon, and roasted tomato gravy, short rib with spinach stuffed agnolotti and black truffle pecorino, and more.

Take a look around the shiny, new dining room with photographer Leslie McKellar.
