Sharing seafood, cocktails with celebrities

Kristen Ginser of West Ashley wants to sip a refreshing cocktail while sharing an indulgent pasta dish, a seafood-centric entree and a whiskey-fueled dessert with three celebrities for her dream dinner. 

DREAM DINNER GUESTS: The late Chris Farley, Ryan Gosling and Kristen Wiig.

DRINK: The Illusionist from The Establishment. “It’s fruity, but not overly sweet, with a good balance of the lemon. Could easily drink three to four of them! Also beautifully made. Makes you feel super fancy!”

Langdon’s goat cheese gnocchi | Provided

APPETIZER: Goat cheese gnocchi from Langdon’s. “The goat cheese gnocchi is absolutely heavenly, true out-of-mouth experience. The gnocchi are so pillowy and the prosciutto and cherry tomatoes balance out the cream sauce so amazingly. I would order a double order as an entree!”

ENTREE: Crab meat-crusted grouper from Long Island Cafe. “Perfect seafood that isn’t fried. Insanely delicious and so well-cooked every time.”

DESSERT: Whiskey bread pudding from Halls Chophouse. “I’m a sucker for bread pudding after living in London for almost one year, and Halls knocks it out of the park with the whiskey version. So sweet and decadent. Always save room for this dessert!”
