Pawley's Island Delight

Greetings from Garden City, South Carolina, where the Lunchboy annual summer vacation has now reached its mid- and boiling-point. Let’s face it: a pale guy like me can only take so much sun, sand and waves, so I’m always looking forward to the next meal. Down here there’s so much from which to choose—mainly at nearby seafood haven Murrell’s Inlet.

Just a few evenings ago, the wife and I traveled a little farther southward, ending up in peaceful Pawley’s Island at Chive Blossom Café. This is one of those little eateries where locals gather to enjoy fresh, high-caliber seafood. It’s also one of those places where you don’t dare show up without a reservation. Don’t worry: I called ahead and got my name in the book, only I had to settle for a 6:30 reservation instead of the preferred 7 p.m. timeslot.

The ambiance at Chive Blossom is charming, romantic and cozy, albeit the tables are a bit too close together. Our server was attentive but lacked personality. Nevertheless, all was forgiven when he managed to point us toward a killer crab and Vidalia onion spread appetizer.

As for main courses, consider these tempting options: pan-seared scallops and shrimp with yellow stone-ground grits; black-pepper encrusted wild salmon; and grilled grouper with silver queen corn.

After the meal, we were too stuffed for dessert, but I plan to go back as soon as possible and take in the key lime tart. I’m a sucker for anything key lime.
