Heimdall just smiled and told Thor to enjoy his time in the Holy City.

Thor was shocked to find himself on Broad St. in front of the almost 300 year old St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Charleston, South hanksCarolina. Thor looked upon the oldest surviving religious structure with a smile but his gaze was distracted by the smell of fresh rock shrimp that were sizzling beside a plate of crispy calamari. Thor all but runs to Hanks Seafood Restaurant to experience the delicious seafood prepared by Chef Frank McMahon. Thor decides to try the Local Clams simmered in white wine, garlic, olive oil and fresh herbs.

Sean Brock melds techniques of American cuisine mixed with his culinary genius to transform high quality, fresh ingredients. The restaurant is located in Charleston’s first tavern which was built in 1771. Thor felt right at home when he sat down to probe deeper into the ever changing menu. He decides to grace his pallet with grilled swordfish caught fresh from South Carolina waters.

The Lemon Pound Cake with cream cheese mousse was just that item. The large piece of Lemon Pound Cake paired with the Knob Creek 100 proof rye satisfied his Asgardian appetite.
