An equal-opportunity dining city, Charleston has everything from authentic Lowcountry fare to avant-garde tasting menus. At Tristan, Nate Whiting’s acclaimed cooking encompasses it all, offering creative, Southern-rooted dishes that “take diners on a delicious romp through modern cuisine,” as per the Charleston City Paper. At his recent Beard House dinner, chef Whiting served this vibrant chilled heirloom tomato–berry soup with white chocolate parfait, African blue basil, and red ribbon sorrel as the first course. Staying in step with the color palette, the delightful soup was paired with a crisp, salmon-hued rosé.
