Extra Ordinary: Vandy Vanderwarker of Charleston's The Ordinary shucking up at Mignonette in May

“We can’t say enough great things about The Ordinary,” Serfer says.  “My business partner Ryan and I ventured to The Ordinary prior to opening Mignonette in 2014 for inspiration and to bow down and chant ‘we’re not worthy.’” “We likey The Ordinary,” Roman raps.  “They shuck their oysters real nice and pretty.”
