We took a break from South Carolina barbeque just long enough to check out Motor Supply, a really charming bistro in the Vista neighborhood, near the University of South Carolina.  We especially enjoyed the ever-changing menu of craft cocktails, to pair with popular dishes like the sugar-cured pork porterhouse ($23), which is bigger than the human head, or the low-country crab cake ($10) which could give Maryland a run for its money. There, we said it!
