Rowland Restaurant Review: "Fine Dining" was included in the restaurant’s name when chef-owner-spouses Bruce and Virginia Rowland assumed a space long beloved as Stella’s (they were handpicked by the prior owners, much as they carefully select the seasonal ingredients that go into the contemporary fare). But they’ve since ditched the descriptor and dropped the white tablecloths in favor of a more casual mien. The Rowlands (he’s culinary, she’s pastry) ran a restaurant on Pawleys Island, so it’s not surprising to detect low country leanings, such as with the gumbo. But you’ll also find quinoa-encrusted eggplant Parmigiana, coq au vin and calamari tacos. And don't miss the bananas Foster for dessert.
