Now in its second week of business, Southern Pecan is bringing Gulf Coast cuisine to SouthPark.
Monte says guests can expect gourmet dishes that are southern, but not “Charlestonian.”
“I think there’s something on the menu for everybody, to be honest, from younger people to more sophisticated diners,” he says.
