Dishing the Details
We talked with our Executive Resort Chef, Charles Pejeau, about where the inspiration came from for the recently added menu items and he said, “Brainstorming previous recipes that we tweak, dishes we see other chefs doing and put our spin on it, and just general research & development of the dish. Alexanders features classic flavor as well as dishes with new flavor profiles added to the classics.”
Gathering local ingredients is important here at Alexander’s too. Chef told us, “We generally try and keep it local if we can on the fish. The snapper is usually sourced from Georgia, South Carolina, or North Carolina waters. The Sea Island red peas and our grits are from Edisto South Carolina, collards are local, and we use a local farmer in Bluffton for all our microgreens we use to garnish dishes.”
Chef Charles’ personal favorite appetizer is the Ahi Tuna Taco appetizer, and he highly recommends the Snapper and the Short Rib for an entrée. The menu is full of flavored bites, extensive wine lists, and fun desserts for the whole table to try on your next trip to Hilton Head Island.
