Located in a crimson sided-home within historic Charleston, Hominy Grill is all about blending the traditional low country food of the south with a modern way of eating. James Beard Award-winning CHEF ROBERT STEHLING explains that super fresh product and seasonal cooking are modern ideals that are also deeply rooted in Charleston’s cultural history. And the thing most people misunderstand about the southern diet? There’s more to it than pork and deep fried things.
“The south has always been an agrarian society, rich in gardens and unique varieties of vegetables,” says Chef Robert Stehling. “Yes there is pork but it is used mostly as a seasoning for other things like collard greens and pots of beans. This is why Hominy's menu is built around the vegetable side dishes.”
