Jasmine Porch

Southern US in Charleston County Sea Islands

Kiawah Island is a private island, mostly for fancy golfers and other well-off folks. But tell 'em at the gate you're headed to Jasmine Porch and, boom, you're in. The charming Southern kitchen is ensconced in the Sanctuary resort and its spacious dining room is defined by a sky-high ceiling, oak-plank flooring and elegant brick.

This is the place for she-crab soup, fried green tomatoes and anything from the sea, which you can also look out at through floor-to-ceiling windows.
