The chefs at Citizen Corners mix South Carolina low-country eats with Louisiana creole flavors, filling tables with artfully prepared plates bearing heaping regional flavors. Crack a menu to start with such appetizers as the fried-green-tomato stack layered with handmade pimiento cheese ($8). Chefs rest amberjack fillets on beds of florentine rice and mixed vegetables and encase them in oven-ready parchment-paper steam rooms with the amberjack papillote ($21). Cajun fried seafood platters are stuffed with a net's worth of alligator, scallops, crawfish tails, and other sea-caught savories, accompanied by land-fished hush puppies ($25). Diners' choices of hand-cut steaks ($18–$23) are prepared with optional toppers such as chipotle lime butter ($1) and a wild mushroom-cabernet reduction ($2).
