Find South Carolina low-country fare at this 130-seat restaurant inside Harlem arts center MIST. Chef Cassandra Quinlan-Ashford (Judson Grill, Tabla) serves classic dishes like Anson Mills organic grits topped with prawns and chicken-fried bacon strips, as well as tropically influenced plates, like a rum-marinated skirt steak with piquant salsa verde or chimchurri-topped mussels. For dessert there are twists on standards like a red-velvet souffle and sweet-potato cobbler. Frosted glass-pendant lamps lend a modern touch to the room's otherwise natural vibe, outfitted with cork floors and woven wood walls.
