Blackberry cheesecake – 17 North Roadside Kitchen

Blackberry cheesecake - 17 North Roadside Kitchen
Because the lights had gone out in the restaurant midway through dinner, the place was pretty dark by the end of our meal so a co-worker offered his cell phone light so I could take a photo of dessert, lol! Take my word that there is a blackberry sauce underneath that’s obscured by the shadow. The cheesecake was ok, but was more crumbly than I like. Three course dinner $30

Beach on Sullivan’s Island. I know you can’t tell from the pic, but there were actually quite a few people out on the beach enjoying the weather that day.

Cherry wood smoked duck breast, white stone grits, spinach, peach gastrique. Three course dinner $30
17 North Roadside Kitchen, Mount Pleasant SC

Mmm, this dish was SO delicious! The duck was cooked perfectly and had a yummy smoked flavor. And how can you resist peaches when you’re in South Carolina? I don’t think it’s possible. This plate had some of my favorites things so it was definitely a success!

Cilantro lime martini – 17 North Roadside Kitchen

Cilantro lime martini - 17 North Roadside Kitchen
Absolut citron, triple sec, fresh lime, cilantro. $8
17 North Roadside Kitchen, Mount Pleasant SC

This cocktail was great and had a nice cilantro flavor, but not overpowering. Halfway through dinner, the power went out in the restaurant so we were dining by candlelight alone. We actually didn’t mind because we were having a great time talking and joking about work. The other thing that struck me about this dinner, was that the waiter totally looked like an ex on mine – weird!

Pan seared scallops – 17 North Roadside Kitchen

Pan seared scallops - 17 North Roadside Kitchen
Local quail eggs, sweet corn puree, asparagus crudo. Three course dinner $30
17 North Roadside Kitchen, Mount Pleasant SC

This dish was SO cute! I loved how they topped each scallop with a tiny quail egg. The scallops were perfectly cooked and everything tasted amazing. I did think that some of the raw asparagus shavings looked clunky and unappetizing.

Cheese and herb biscuit - 17 North Roadside Kitchen
Cheese and herb biscuit with honey butter. Complimentary
These warm, savory biscuits were oh so delicious and addictive. I had to stop eating them to save room for dinner, hehe!

Cape Cod cocktail – 17 North Roadside Kitchen

Cape Cod cocktail - 17 North Roadside Kitchen
Vodka and cranberry juice with lime wedge. Arrived here during happy hour and took advantage of their drink specials. This place came highly recommended and we had a great time, but it’s randomly located. I’m just glad that I wasn’t driving when we tried to find the place.
