Enjoying a supremely delicious dream dinner

West Ashley resident Kathleen House wants to sip summertime mojitos on the rooftop of The Dewberry with two celebrities and an iconic Supreme Court justice before digging into a veggie-forward appetizer and an indulgent entree.

DREAM DINNER GUESTS: Taylor Swift, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Adam Brody.

DRINK: Hibiscus Mojito from The Dewberry. “Sunset at The Dewberry [rooftop] is spectacular. Add in the Hibiscus Mojito and what more do you need? It is very refreshing!”

APPETIZER: Hen of the woods mushrooms, ginger and spring onion. “If you haven’t been to Vern’s yet, you have to go. … [The mushrooms] were cooked perfectly, with a delicious topping of spring onions.”

ENTREE: Ricotta and goat cheese gnocchi from Wild Olive. “I can’t even describe the deliciousness of the amazing homemade gnocchi they make there.”

DESSERT: Callie’s In-Betweens from Graft Wine Shop. “You might be surprised by the dessert, but really I am a huge carb and wine fan. … [Graft] has special Callie’s biscuits with chorizo and cheddar that, of course, pairs nicely with any red wine they have.”
