It’s the first day for business at Gentry Bar & Room on Lower King and diners are already flocking to the seats. Chef Marvin Woods brings his brand of “coastal soul,” with influences from the Lowcountry and Gullah tradition to Gentry. Chef consultant and Gullah specialist Charlotte Jenkins pulls in additional local influences.
The menu, posted in the window at Gentry, offers Lowcountry flavors like deviled crabs, collards, Carolina Gold rice, and fried chicken livers at a King Street premium. Check out the full list here.
