Good Eats {Travels}: The Ordinary

Our trip to Kiawah was glorious for so many reasons.  One of those reasons was date night.  Matt and I hadn’t gone out on a date for months.  When planning our vacation, I researched Charleston restaurants and debated where to make reservations for our big night out.  I settled on The Ordinary. It seemed like a great date night spot where we could eat food we love but don’t often get to enjoy in Pittsburgh.
The Ordinary I must say, it surpassed my extremely high expectations. The food was absolutely incredible, the ambiance sophisticated but not snooty, and the service impeccable.

We ordered a variety of different small plates and ate every last bit.  We had: Crispy Oysters + Beef Tartare, BBQ White Shrimp with Charred Bread, Jumbo Lump Blue Crab Toast with Lemon & Aioli, Shrimp Gazpacho and of course a dozen oysters and of course dessert.
The Ordinary food collage The BBQ shrimp was the most delicious shrimp I’ve ever had…it was my favorite food of the night.  I also really enjoyed trying the raw oysters.  I’ve been afraid to really dive into them before, as I worried that the texture would be too slimy and the flavor too salty.  I was pleasantly surprised at the layers of flavor and the freshness.  I wouldn’t say they are my favorite kind of seafood, but I am much more open minded to them now.
The Ordinary interior I will certainly go back to The Ordinary again and plan to the next time we visit Charleston.
