Charleston sunset, by Missy Hanahan.

GOOD NEWS:  Great sunset plus accolades for restaurants, groundskeeper, more

Staff reports  |  Here’s one of the best Lowcountry sunset photos we’ve seen in a while.  Taken last week by Missy Hanahan of Charleston, it’s hard to tell whether the sky or reflection is at the top of the picture of a still pond near Ashley River Road.  (Answer: Sky is at the top.)  Thanks, Missy, for the photo.

Also in Good News: Bertha’s, The Grocery:  Hats off to these two Charleston area eateries for making Eater’s annual list of America’s Essential Restaurants.  They’re two of 38 restaurants across the U.S. that made the list.  On Bertha’s in North Charleston, the site noted, “Albertha Grant founded the restaurant in the early 1980s, and many of her specialties — meaty okra stew, tomato-stained red rice, creamy lima beans, and turkey prioleau (a sustaining rice dish available only on Tuesdays) — originate from the culinary traditions of the Gullah, former slaves who established themselves in Lowcountry hamlets and the nearby islands.”  On The Grocery, Eater says, “he Grocery has steadily bloomed into one of the city’s most remarkable and welcoming restaurants. This is the circa-right-now modern American menu, Lowcountry edition: delicata squash with pomegranate and herbed tahini-yogurt sauce; smoked mackerel flanked by crackers with everything-bagel seasoning; triggerfish over cornbread puree, bacon, and pickled mushrooms.”
