Family supper

Kim Clay of West Ashley would like to gather with family members, including her late father and her granddaughter, along with Michelle Obama for a dream dinner. Together, they’ll enjoy a classic Southern appetizer, an indulgent entree and a refreshingly sweet dessert.

DREAM DINNER GUESTS: “My dad (deceased), my granddaughter and Michelle Obama. It would be a birthday party, [as] me, my dad and my granddaughter share the same birthday.”

DRINK: Lemon Drop at the Hotel Bennett. “The greatest Lemon Drop is at The Bennett Hotel. They’re great mixologists there.”

APPETIZER: Fried green tomato tower at Vickery’s. “As a fried green tomato connoisseur, I’ve been taking my fiancé around town to taste them with me for about six months. We finally went to the best, and he was floored.”

ENTREE: Basil duck at Basil Thai. “Basil duck at Basil Thai is also a favorite because as I travel, I compare. Had a pretty good duck in Connecticut, but [Basil] hands down the crispy on the outside and juicy inside is great.”

DESSERT: Key Lime pie at Coast Bar and Grill. “The key lime pie is so limey —if that’s a word.”
