US Airways - June 2012 - (Page 95)

“The food scene in Columbia is really getting going and we’re proud to be at the forefront,” Davis says. Known for his dynamic menu that focuses on local produce and meats, Davis effuses about what’s available fresh from local farms and markets — and subsequently seen on lots of area menus. Here’s where he likes to eat — his inside dish on Columbia dining: @116 “Our neighbors on State Street have a fun, ever-changing menu and great Spanish tapas. This is our staff’s regular spot for after-shift drinks and food.” Baan Sawan “I love when co-owner and chef Alex Suaudom has boar on the menu. This bistro has awesome curries and the best Thai food in town.” The Gourmet Shop “This Europeanstyle cafe is great at lunch. Try a panini or their chicken salad. Pick up a bottle of wine from their wine shop and choose from a great selection of cheeses in their market on your way out.” Motor Supply Company Bistro Palmetto Seafood Company “Lucius Moultrie [the owner] has a great selection of local seafood to take home to cook, and prepared shrimp, scallops, clam strips, fried oysters and fish to go.” Davis also digs his ’cue. “My favorite Southern comfort food is without a doubt barbecue,” he says. “I love ribs, shoulder, and whole-hog cooking.” When possible, Terra’s menu features BBQ Lamb Shoulder Stuffed Mac & Cheese Gratin. “It takes two Southern favorites — barbecue, and mac and cheese — and combines them into a rich explosion of flavor,” Davis says, adding that locals know to ask for “Lamb Mac.” His current favorite place for great local ’cue is Bone-In Artisan Barbecue on Wheels, part of the national food-truck craze that’s hit downtown Columbia. Bone-In Artisan Barbecue on Wheels Investigate the fun of hands-on learning and discover new ways to explore your world. “Motor Supply has a daily-changing handwritten menu, great wine list, and it’s the spot in town for Sunday brunch.” Bone-In Artisan Barbecue on Wheels “This food truck serves up originals like smoked brisket in hickoryhoisin sauce with handmade focaccia bread. Find the truck’s location on the official Web site.” Lizard’s Thicket (14 area locations) COLUMBIA-AIRPORT An Eco-friendly Hotel Right on ’Cue! “This ‘meat and three’ [an entree and three sides] is a Columbia institution for Southern favorites and a hearty breakfast. Don’t miss the fried chicken.” Mr. Friendly’s New Southern Cafe “Great favorite Southern dishes at dinner with a wine list to match, but I love the po’boys on the lunch menu.” Rosso Trattoria Italia “A cool neighborhood Italian spot [in nearby Forest Acres] with a great bar. Don’t skip the pizza menu.” Favorite barbecue styles (mustard versus vinegar versus ketchup) can spark heated discussions. These fiery Columbia-area hot spots most definitely do their ’cue just right: Maurice’s BBQ (; Palmetto Pig Barbecue Restaurant (palmettopig .com); Hudson’s Smokehouse (hud; RB’s Bodacious Barbeque (rbsbodaciousbbq.blogspot .com); Little Pigs Barbecue (littlepigs .biz); Doc’s Barbeque & Southern Buffet (; Shealy’s Bar-B-Que (; and Big T’s Bar-B-Que ( Awarded Official Best of South Carolina Designed for LEED Gold Certification Three Palmetto Certified Good Earthkeeping Award Winner Exemplary Project Award Winner 110 McSwain Drive West Columbia, SC 29169 (803) 391-4000 OR 1-800 HOLIDAY Independently owned and operated by Courtesy Management Inc.
