As my mom and I drove into Isle of Palms we stopped at a little gem in the Island Center for our first meal on the island. Don’t shy away from the restaurant in a small strip center. Long Island Cafe has been a favorite of locals and tourists in the know about since 1986. A friend of my dad’s turned us on to this coastal bistro years ago. Their twist on Shrimp and Grits with a white wine sauce is fantastic. I couldn’t get Ravi Scher to give up his recipe but I did get the ingredients for the sauce. Over the grilled shrimp and grits is a sauce of fish stock with roasted vegetables with a little white wine. They top the dish with fried leek strips.
