Charleston Edition: The Elements at the Quarrier Diner
The Quarrier Diner has a storied past - one of history, of deception, of resurgence, and now, one of rising again.
The Elements at the Quarrier Diner reopened recently, and I was eager to try it out again.
The restaurant focuses on "elements" - earth, air, water, fire.
And the decor reflects this new, modern vibe. The wooden walls and modern tables were a big change from what I recalled.
We were greeted with a basket of biscuits and apple butter.
Then, I put in an order for hushpuppies - which were stuffed with pimento cheese and served with tartar sauce.
We were served "family-style" sides - a mushrooms risotto and green beans.
For my entree, I went with the "BFD."
That's braised wild boar belly and cheese grits with a sunnyside quail egg.
