A Charleston native, Patrick Owens’ knowledge and passion for Southern cuisine runs deep, cultivated in his grandparent’s kitchen and at Lowcountry fish fries on the Pee Dee River. At just 27, Patrick seized an opportunity to have his own restaurant, and opened Langdon’s Restaurant + Wine Bar. Fast-forward 10 years, when Langdon’s has since become a bright spot in the local dining scene, earning the only AAA Four Diamond award East of the Cooper every year since opening. In 2011, he opened Opal Restaurant + Wine Bar, his own take on an inviting, California-style eatery with the same level of attention to service and detail as the more formal Langdon’s. In 2013, Patrick was invited to cook for a sold-out dinner at NYC’s James Beard House. Patrick has raised the standard on cuisine in Mt. Pleasant and takes great pride in creating dining experiences that endure the test of time.
