At the Mustard Seed, you will find traditional American dishes as well as Middle Eastern and European influences. The wine selection is small but of very good quality. The Sicilian owner, after falling in love with the state of South Carolina, opened the Mustard Seed, the first of five other restaurants in Mount Pleasant alone. He brought with him from Italy his passion for cooking, and though he is not a Mount Pleasant native, he has learnt to master the region’s best ingredients and recipes. Be sure to leave enough room for the coconut cake when you stop by, it would be a shame to miss it.
