Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy innovative fare with the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of creative international cuisine at The Studio, located in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
The walls of the warmly lit dining room where chef Paul Colella's mouth-watering entrees are served double as an art gallery for the colorful figurative paintings of his wife, Lunonia. While tongues tickle plates decorated with creative concoctions such as cabernet-reduction prime filet mignon ($32) and wild-salmon fillet with applewood smoked bacon, butternut squash, and a maple-pecan glaze ($29), eyes and ears can rendezvous with the sight of Lunonia slathering oils on canvas in the dining room or the sounds of guitarist Armand DeMille's retro rock ballads on Friday and Saturday nights. The Studio's list of 70 red and white wines offers sophisticated accompaniment to savory solids, and specialty coffee drinks and desserts keep nocturnal dentists in business.
- The art, the atmosphere and THE FOOD are truly something you must experience. – Flyrod34, TripAdvisor
- This is a very unique restaurant and we will be returning whenever we are in the area. The restaurant features artwork from local artists, a live performing artist, and a painter working on a canvas. It is small and intimate and the music was the perfect volume. – OpenTable reviewer who dined on 11/06/10
