Red Sky

1001 Landfall Way. Seabrook Island

(843) 768-0183

Kiawah and Seabrook have always had a few star restaurants that do a brisk business with the tourists without giving locals much reason to drive out. But back in the fall, Seabrook got a new addition with Red Sky. Just before you get to the imposing gates of the affluent island community, Red Sky sits in a small building with a gas pump out front and a snack shop next door. Though it’s got a refreshingly casual feel, Chef Matt Bolus’ creations are modern and creative — particularly the appetizers; try the seared scallop served with vanilla-spiked sweet potato puree, lobster jus, and truffles, topped with a spoonful of caviar. Don’t let the islands intimidate you — Red Sky is worth the trip.
