Find a $3,000 Pumpkin Spice Upgrade at The Shellmore

Pumpkin spice oysters?

Menu at The Shellmore

It’s decorative gourd season, so the pumpkin spice is flowing throughout the Lowcountry — and one restaurant in Mount Pleasant wants to make the cinnamon-y, sweet experience ultra exclusive. For the price of a very used car, wine bar/dinner spot The Shellmore will upgrade any of its menu items to reflect the pumpkin spice season (see above photo). The $3,000 add-on is, of course, a joke, but the bartender confirmed to Eater that chef Eric Milley does indeed have the necessary ingredients in case any customers decide to splurge.

The recent menu of oysters, razor clams, dirty rice risotto, and steak tartare doesn’t really lend itself to a pumpkin infusion, but perhaps the apple and arugula salad with blue cheese and walnuts could be a good candidate.

The Shellmore opened this summer at 357 North Shelmore Blvd. in I’on with an interesting wine list and a rotating board of critic-approved small plates.

For those looking to drop $3,000 on the spice, the I’on restaurant opens Tuesday through Saturday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. — send a photo if it happens.
