MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – July 31, 2012 – Vintage Twelve, the newest Myrtle Beach oceanfront restaurant at Kingston Resorts, has taken upscale dining to a new level. The restaurant recently opened after extensive renovations of Embassy Suites Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resort in Kingston Plantation. The entire first floor was upgraded with a sleek new contemporary décor enhanced with beautiful elevated ocean views.
The 44-seat Vintage Twelve restaurant was designed as an open-kitchen concept. The restaurant has been called an “organic gourmet haven” by Myrtle Beach Restaurant News, and the response from diners has been overwhelming.
Chef Caitlin Brady made a mark on the dining scene with her Southern-style recipes that focus on the freshest local ingredients and seafood. She trained with Executive Chef Frank Lee at the Old Village Post House in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina and High Hammock on Pawleys Island. Now, Brady has refined her style to match the cuisine typical of the finer chefs in Charleston. She honors the region’s time-honored traditional dishes including fried flounder, sweet succotash and buttery shrimp and grits. But then, she elevates these old favorites with innovative twists such as hush puppies with pimento cheese fondue. Or, she’ll add goat cheese grits to a tender rack of lamb.
“One diner said our peach ice cream was just like her grandma’s” said Brady. “I love it when diners get emotional. That kind of response means we have created memories for our patrons and have taken something old and made it new.”
The menu features something for everyone including grass-fed natural beef from Niman Ranch, fresh fish from the waters of Murrells Inlet, organically grown vegetables from local farms and homemade butter and ice cream. The restaurant also features an extensive wine list with selections from around the world in addition to an assortment of craft beers and cocktails that complement the cuisine.
