Food lovers everywhere know that simplicity of a restaurant’s name does not imply a simple menu. 492 is a perfect example. The intricate creations of Executive Chef Josh Keeler contain complex ingredients such as Schmaltz, Zhoug, Bronze Muscadine Jelly, and Fennel Pollen and the menu changes on a seasonal basis.
Sourcing fresh ingredients is only one of the ways to stays true to Lowcountry culture, as the history of the building in which the restaurant is housed has been preserved to tell a story of Charleston’s past as well. Although most come for the food, all can enjoy the famous $4.92 Happy Hour as they are delighting in the menu, with a creative cocktail, a glass of wine, or a local draft beer. For those looking for the perfect mix of progressive, delicious and historic it doesn’t get any better than 492.
