The Obstinate Daughter

Chef Jacques Larson operates on the fringes, creating destination restaurants far off the Charleston peninsula, first with his Johns Island trattoria, Wild Olive, and now with this seafood-and-pizza-focused outpost on Sullivan’s Island. His signature ricotta gnocchi with short-rib ragù and horseradish gremolata sets tastebuds salivating and inspires frequent return drives to the beach, as do pizzas like “Old Danger,” featuring pancetta, black pepper, and a farm egg over melted mozzarella and parmesan. Weekend brunch is in especially high demand, but the well-designed, nautical-but-not-kitsch dining room and wraparound raw bar stay packed for lunch and dinner every day of the week. Downstairs, there’s an in-house coffee-and-gelato shop, BeardCat’s, that doles out breakfast sandwiches and lattes in the morning and 20 flavors of house made icy goodness all afternoon and evening.

The Obstinate Daughter

Just blocks from the beach, the Obstinate Daughter focuses on Italian favorites and local food, with a heavy dose of seafood appropriate to its Sullivan’s Island location. The space is nautical without feeling cheesy, featuring walls covered in bare, weathered beams. Try the house-made cannolicchi, with local fish and clams, or one of the wood-oven pizzas. There’s also a good selection of local beers, as well as wine and craft cocktails.
