Local seafood rules this dining experience

Sarah Dean of Mount Pleasant enjoys indulging in Charleston’s many seafood offerings. “I chose two seafood dishes [for My Dream Dinner] specifically because the Charleston area has so much to offer,” she said. Check out her picks:

DREAM DINNER GUESTS: “My brother Justin, who passed away five years ago, my Uncle Rich, who passed away in December, and Robert Downey Jr., because I know my Uncle Rich would have loved to meet him.”

DRINK: Jalapeno cucumber margarita from Los Reyes. “The blend from the fresh cucumber and the heat of the jalapeno is a perfect combination.”

APPETIZER: Tarvin shrimp toast from Ty’s Roadside Coastal Kitchen. “Local shrimp from the waters around here is delicious, and the way Ty’s prepares it as an appetizer on a toasted piece of bread is delicious, garlicky, buttery and addicting.”

ENTREE: Pan-seared sea scallops from Hank’s Seafood. “The best scallops I have ever had were from Hank’s Seafood. They are cooked to perfection.”

DESSERT: Tollhouse pie from Kaminsky’s Dessert Cafe. “Kaminsky’s has such an amazing selection of goodies. I always go with the Tollhouse pie, warmed with a scoop of ice cream.”
