STORIED ISLAND RESTAURANT GIVES YOU MORE TO ENJOY
by BARRY KAUFMAN
Across the spectrum of great restaurants that call Hilton Head Island home, Lucky Rooster stands apart from the pack. Gleefully dancing between fine dining and good old fashioned Southern goodness, the guiding philosophy at Lucky Rooster has always been to simply take the comfort food you know and give it a culinary makeover.
“It’s still Southern American-inspired food, it’s just prepared in an elevated way that brings out the quality,” said owner David Leffew. “We are focused on providing an amazing dining experience that is both fun and approachable.”
Aiding in that approach is executive chef David Landrigan who came to Lucky Rooster from upscale Savannah eatery Circa 1875. A classically trained chef, he’s been carrying on the restaurant’s signature style, adding his own subtle (and enormously delicious) spin on each dish.
The result is a restaurant that stands apart, yet never stops reinventing itself. Lucky Rooster offers daily brunch specials along with lunch everyday. Now you don’t have to wait until Sunday to enjoy a Bloody Mary and bottomless mimosas with the famed Buffalo chicken benedict, steak and eggs or traditional French omelet with gruyere.
“It’s something not a lot of people are doing on the island,” said Leffew. “It’s going to be a really exciting atmosphere.”
