2016 Citrus Celebration 1.4.16

Over twenty of Charleston’s best bars and restaurants are getting into the citrusy spirit as they showcase delicious drinks, dishes, and desserts as part of Limehouse Produce’s 2016 Citrus Celebration. This year, participants were asked to get a little more creative and select from just four citrus items: cara cara oranges, satsuma tangerines, pumellos, and meyer lemons when creating their items.

Limehouse Produce is once again sharing more details on these featured dishes and drinks on their website along with recipes for people to download and try on their own. Patrons can also go and ask for the respected dish or drink at the participants locations until the end of February.

A panel of judges will be visiting the top five places from each category and select a winner for the Best Citrus Dish and Best Citrus Drink. Each winner will be promoted on the website, social media outlets, and to the media. NEW THIS YEAR: The restaurant with the winning dish will be featured on the side of a Limehouse Produce truck and the winning drink will be featured in a ½ page ad in The Local Palate.

Check out the entries here.
