Description: No one drives too fast and nothing is rushed on Edisto Island. It's a "beachy, semitropical version of Mayberry," says Melinda Hester of the chamber of commerce. There are no traffic lights, no motels, and no fast-food franchises. What Edisto Island does have are beaches, tranquillity, and loggerhead turtles that nest there from May through autumn. "We're off the beaten path and we like it that way," says Charlie White, proprietor of the Edisto Beach Cafe.
Edisto Island also has The Old Post Office Restaurant, which serves brilliant meals cooked in the Lowcountry style in a building that really was Edisto's old post office and later a general store and gas station. Chef Philip Bardin and David Gressette opened the restaurant in 1988, and it has been receiving acclaim ever since from publications such as the New York Times, Travel and Leisure, USA Today, Wine Spectator, and Gourmet magazine.
Jane and Michael Stern point out "the bedrock authenticity of the plates of food that emerge from the kitchen of chef Philip Bardin. Philip rejoices in victuals that areas local as can be: oysters straight from oysterman "Mr. Percy," vegetables from the island's fertile soil, and those grits -- stone ground by a local mill especially for The Old Post Office.... The unique combination of authenticity and invention make The Old Post Office a dining experience like none other."
Cooking in the Lowcountry The Old Post Office Restaurant will enable you to pay a leisurely, relaxing visit to a unique restaurant in a carefree part of the world and enjoy some of the best cooking in the Lowcountry.
