Hot Happenings in the Food and Beverage Industry


Biscuit of the Month: Rooster Biscuits N Gravy

If you don’t know, the biscuits Dave Peck (local since 1974) is serving at Bad Biscuit are bad to the bone! This month’s featured biscuit is his made-from-scratch Rooster Biscuits N Gravy ($9) — a flaky biscuit, smothered in sausage gravy, with scrambled eggs on top. It’s one bad biscuit (in a good way).


Lucky Rooster offering meal kits

If you love cooking with a meal kit but are disappointed with the quality of ingredients shipped by most meal delivery services, consider picking up a fresh meal kit from Lucky Rooster Kitchen + Bar. The restaurant is offering exciting options for families that want to have a healthy, fun, thoughtful and tasteful dinner. Take home options include add-ons for kids, 1/2 off bottles of wine for adults and more. Submit your orders at luckyroosterhhi.com or by calling 843-681-3474.


Hilton Head Distillery offers online shipping

There might be a shortage of toilet paper, but Hilton Head Distillery promises to never run out of booze. The local spirit maker announced its online shipping is now up and running, giving you yet another reason to never leave your house again. Fill up your virtual cart at shop.hiltonheaddistillery.com. Just remember, someone 21 years of age or older must be available to sign for any alcohol orders. If you are typically not home throughout the day, order to your place of work or your favorite FedEx location.


Edible work of art

This special appetizer recently offered by Red Fish looked almost too good to eat (almost being the key word there). The jalapeño-orange marmalade was the perfect compliment to the charred local jumbo shrimp. Find the restaurant’s complete menu at redfishofhiltonhead.com.


Get your chocolate fix

Upgrade your Easter basket with a few decadently rich truffles from Kilwins at Shelter Cove or a few hand-dipped confections from The Chocolate Canopy. Both chocolate hotspots ship nationwide. Learn more at kilwins.com and chocolatecanopy.com.


Breakfast is served

Feed up to six people for $35 with this mouth-watering pan of Strata available at Palmetto Bay Sunrise Cafe. Pick it up and reheat it at home. Tangy chili sauce is served on the side. Call 843-686-3232 to place your order.
