Our Story Begins In The South
Florence’s Lowcountry Kitchen is a tribute to Florence Powell, the Great Grandmother of Jonathan and Patrick Kish of 82 Queen Restaurant, established in 1982. Florence Moseley was born in 1908 in Charleston, South Carolina. She worked at The American Tobacco Company’s Cigar Factory, where she met and married the plant manager, Jesse Powell. They enjoyed their life in the Lowcountry - crabbing, fishing, visiting the Limehouse Farmers Market on Wappoo Road, and creating delicious home-cooked southern meals. They passed their recipes down to their granddaughter, Tyler Kish, wife to Steve Kish, chef-owner of 82 Queen. Florence and Jesse’s favorite dishes to cook were Crab, Shrimp, Fish, and Fried Chicken & Waffles. Every holiday, Florence would make her famous Granny's Punch.
