Situated on Charleston’s storied East Bay Street, Pawpaw offers a modern, Southern-inspired, sharable menu. Focusing on family farms and seasonality, Pawpaw’s menu changes according the peak seasons for local and regional ingredients. Diners can expect inspired takes on classic Southern standards like buttermilk biscuits, fluffy hushpuppies, free-range fried chicken and wood grilled shrimp + grits, grilled pork chops, and our signature housemade fresh pastas.
The seasonal menu is complemented by a lineup of high-end bourbons, craft cocktails, Charleston brews, and boutique wines.
General Manager Jared K. Jones curated the beverage program for Pawpaw, which highlights local liquor, rare bourbons, and Charleston beers on tap, as well as unique wine varietals from around the globe. Notably, he also spent a year traveling, tasting, and building relationships while rediscovering the wines North Carolina. North Carolina is the oldest wine making region in the USA, with 180 of wine making history, and, stunningly, the region has quietly been winning international awards in wine since 1900. He’s found a handful of magnificent local wines from the Yadkin Valley, NC to pair with Pawpaw’s modern Southern cuisine.
