St. Patrick’s Day at the GO — Always Delicious!

At the GO, St. Paddy’s Day is obviously another food holiday!  Come in Monday, March 17, to enjoy our house cured corned beef!  That’s all natural, grassfed brisket from South Carolina…YUM.

We will be serving this all day long from open to close — 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

P.S. And this year Chris has even made his own Guinness Mustard!

Mardi Gras at the GO!

Come join us as we  ring in Mardi Gras on Tuesday, March 4.  We will serve up all sorts of Louisiana deliciousness — po boys, gumbos, crawfish etouffee, sazeracs and the KING CAKE POUND CAKE (pictured above!)  Those in costume will receive a slice of cake on the house.

We will also honor our own tradition of serving fried chicken during Tuesday dinner service (from 5 until 9 p.m.)  However, in keeping with Mardi Gras, we will serve the fried chicken with red beans and rice.  As usual, the fried chicken will be offered on a first come, first served basis unless reservations are made by 3 p.m. on the preceding Monday (March 3).

We will be open on Mardi Gras from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and our daily menu can be found by clicking here. And our full fried chicken reservation policy can be found by clicking here.  Fried chicken reservations can be made by calling the Glass Onion at 843-225-1717.

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

Valentine’s at the GO!

Most years on Valentine’s we join the ranks of taking reservations and offer up a tasting dinner for all of the lovebirds out there.  However, this year Valentine’s happens to fall on a Friday and during the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition.  Locals know that this means dining out on that night could prove quite the challenge…

Thus, our Valentine’s present to you will be a regular night at the GO!  Well, by regular, we mean that we will not be taking reservations and we will be serving up local deliciousness as always.

However, we will also offer a special Dinner For Two Option in addition to our regular dinner menu.  For $55, you can each choose between a soup or salad to start and then share a local grassfed chateaubriand with lump crabmeat!  Sides will also be included, and we will be offering a very special “grower” Champagne — Charles Orban Blanc de Noirs — for $50/bottle.

With all our wines we strive to feature smaller producers who take the most care with their product.  In Champagne this can be a challenge as most of the Champagne houses are very large operations who buy grapes from many vineyards.  Thankfully, there are a growing number of producers like Charles Orban who farm their own grapes for their own champagne.  Trust us — it’s delicious!  And we believe it will be the perfect accompaniment to this tasty Friday night.

Oh and did we mention there will be a backdrop of live jazz???

Come join the fun between 5 and 10 p.m. on Friday, February 14.  As stated, reservations are not necessary as we want to include everyone!

Our full menu will be posted to the website on Friday afternoon; you can always access the dinner menu page by clicking here.

Discover the Wine Region of Sardinia!

Shouldn’t everyone have some sort of New Year’s resolution centered around new knowledge, new places…new wine?  Here at the Glass Onion, we think this is the perfect goal for 2014, and we have just the answer in our featured wine for January/February — carignan from Sardinia!

Carignan is an often overlooked varietal that some might recognize as a blending grape or from its notorious past as a source for bland table wine coming from southern France and elsewhere.  But in reality, carignan has beautiful structure and depth that really evolve under optimal growing conditions and with appropriate care into a truly beautiful wine.

Thankfully, Italy’s island of Sardinia provides just such a climate, and the Sardus Pater cooperative provides just such care.  This beauty has loads of dark fruit backed by an inherent earthiness making it perfect for winter dishes like braised pork belly or our local grassfed beef tenderloin.


Enjoy it for $8/glass or $36/bottle and give yourself a pat on the back for keeping up with being new in the new year!

P.S. And don’t forget that all of our wines are sustainable, organic or biodynamic — check out the full list here!  AND they are half priced for dine-in on Mondays and half priced everyday with take-out!

A Bit More About New Year’s Eve…

Hello and happy holidays!  We certainly hope that everyone is filled with much cheer and little stress!  If you happen to be feeling the stress then perhaps you should stop in for our featured cocktail in honor of our New Year’s Eve dinner — the French 75.  This classic bubbly based cocktail has roots in New Orleans where they spike it with cognac as opposed to the more ubiquitous use of gin.  Trust us — it’s delicious, as is our entire New Year’s Eve tasting dinner!

We are excited to serve you a menu inspired by the grand old restaurants of New Orleans paired with French wines.  So, expect to start with the French 75 and then move on to some real gems.

With the first course we will be offering you a choice between three dishes — Oysters en Brochette (imagine fried oysters and bacon), Crab Maison ( a refreshing salad) and Our Hogshead Cheese (a traditional pate made from local pork!)  We believe that the Blanck Pinot Auxerrois will pair beautifully with all these offerings.  This is a round and elegant white from Alsace backed by that Old World minerality.

For the second course, everyone will enjoy an authentic Turtle Soup.  We so hoped that we could find wild, domestic turtle that would enable us to create this iconic New Orleans dish, and that’s exactly what happened.  We will serve Domaine Besson Givry Haut Colombier, which should cut the richness of the soup nicely.  Givry is a small region in Burgundy specializing predominately in pinot noir.  So, expect bright red fruit that will keep your palate fresh for the third course.

And finally, voila, for the third course we will offer a choice between a fresh Atlantic catch, Duck a la Marengo (with crawfish!), and local grassfed beef brisket with horseradish cream.  For the wine choice we will showcase a Crozes Hermitage.  This legendary region in the northern Rhone demonstrates the awesome power of the syrah grape.  Here, you will find depth and grace perfectly suited to match all of the menu options.

For dessert, expect nothing less than Bananas Foster Bread Pudding, Creme Caramel and Apple Tarte Tatin.  Paired with one of the most famed dessert wines in the world — Sauternes — you are sure to go home happy!

So, please reserve your spots today — 843-225-1717 — we would love to bid farewell to 2013 with you and share a truly memorable evening.  For the entire menu please click here.

*$50 for 4 courses
*Optional Wine Pairing $30 per guest
*Reservations Only — Call 843-225-1717
*6-10 pm with Live Jazz!

And voila — New Year’s Eve Tasting Menu!

We can hardly wait for New Year’s Eve and the chance to celebrate the grand old dining of New Orleans.  Perhaps you have been to one of the old guard restaurants there — Galatoire’s, Antoine’s, Arnaud’s — with their pristine tiled floors, formal service and historic cuisine.  These culinary institutions date back 100 years and more!

As usual with our tasting dinners we aim to pay tribute to tradition but also provide our own perspective.  Below you will find a menu with classics from many of the aforementioned restaurants but also expect a few surprises.  We believe that the wine pairing of equally iconic French beauties will make for a truly exquisite evening.

Please reserve your spots to celebrate with us by calling 843-225-1717. The dining hours will be from 6-10 pm, and there will be a backdrop of live jazz.

Thank you for a wonderful 2013!

Experience a GO Tasting Dinner!

If you have never experienced one of our tasting dinners we would love to see you on New Year’s Eve!  We will be hosting a 4-course tasting dinner (from 6-10 pm) that that pays homage to the grand old dining of New Orleans.  We host three tasting dinners each year and love to take the opportunity to step out of our proverbial culinary box.  Choosing a bit of a theme and creating a wine pairing to match makes for a memorable occasion for everyone!
