It never takes much for me to rationalize a trip to Solstice Kitchen. Granted, it’s located in the hinterlands of Northeast Columbia, so I usually only make my way there on trips home to Hartsville. Tonight was one such night. I hadn’t planned on stopping, but traffic was bumper-to-bumper on I-20 for miles ahead as I approached the Clemson Rd. exit, so I figured it was meant to be. From 5-7 PM, Solstice offers half-off some of their best appetizers, including their fried select oysters and Gorgonzola fondue. Tonight I opted for the latter.
A personal serving of Gorgonzola cheese dip over a cute little votive candle + pear slices + French bread + Portobello “fritters” + skewer of perfectly medium-rare tenderloin bites. Nuff said. I know Northeast Columbia is reaaaaaaaally far away, but Solstice is worth it.
