Recommends

          I have been asked over and over to make a simple reference page for restaurants I recommend. II would rather you just read the blog to find out, but I am here to serve. I promise to update this list as we dine about:

$$$$$
Anson
       Helmed by one of Charleston's most dynamic chefs, and in a killer location, Anson is always worth your time

The Woodlands
        The one and only 5-star, 5-diamond restaurant in the state, The Woodlands sets the bar for fine dinning in Charleston  CLOSED FOR BUSINESS
  

Oak Steakhouse
       Modern Southern take on the traditional steakhouse, Oak has come a long way under the steady hand of Chef Bacon


Hall's Chophouse
       A classic New York steakhouse with a family flair.


Tristan
      Simple, Modern, and Unexpected is the tag line and it fits oh so well.


Charleston Grill
       Sumptuous, elegant, and as worldly as Southern food can get


$$$$

The Grocery
         Sharable plates and a farm-to-table ethos make this a "must try" spot on Upper King

39 Rue de Jean
       Classic French brasserie in the heart of Downtown. Besides, who could turn down coq au vin with a side of sushi

Fat Hen
     John's Island's farm fresh French gem. Make sure to get there early for brunch


Hank's Seafood
      A classic Charleston fish house with a saloon feel. Don't forget to try the seafood tower!


Il Cortile del Re
      In my mind still the most romantic restaurant in Charleston. Oh, and they serve incredible Italian fare


$$$
Al di La
      This Avondale Italian restaurant stays packed for a reason. When the weather is nice, enjoy the patio and great takes on classic dishes


Bushido
       Even though the rise to fame was on the back of the Spicy Tuna Roll Challenge, that doesn't mean Bushido is just sushi. Their bowls are incredible. They also do midnight sushi!


Cork Bistro
      Proof that North Charleston isn't a total waste of space. Cork is a fresh, seasonal bistro with a constantly evolving menu


Fish
     Between Master Chef of France Nico Romo's French-Asian take on modern, sustainable food and Evan Powell's mixology mastery, Fish is a must try for any true foodie.


Tasty Thai & Sushi
     Solid, unassuming Thai food delivered with fresh ingredients


TBonz
     When you want a steak that doesn't cost an arm & a leg, skip Longhorns and head over to Charleston's own TBonz


$$
Bluerose Cafe
     An Irish Cafe hidden in the urban sprawl of Highway 61. If you want to try their fabulous brunch, get there early


Boulevard Diner
     Southern Diner food taken to a new level. Check out the daily specials board


Bowan's Island Restaurant
      A traditional shuck-shack, head over to Bowan's for fresh seafood in a traditional dive joint

Butcher & Bee
       Late-night and lunch sandwich joint, putting the gourmet back in the bread


Famulari's Pizza
      The only pizza to eat in Summerville


Fast & French
      Communal table dinning in this Broad Street landmark means you will be getting to know your fellow patrons very well. The simple French cuisine makes it worth it.


Kim's Korean & Japanese Steakhouse
      My favorite restaurant in Charleston. Do yourself a favor and try the Stone Bowl


Philly's of Summerville
       Best Cheesesteak in Charleston. Period


Riso Noodle House
      German-Asian fusion? Yes, and it works SOOOOOO well


Smoky Oak Taproom
       From BBQ to burgers to more beer than you can shake a stick at, its hard to go wrong at this James Island gem

The 'Wich Doctor
     The Best sandwich by the sea you will ever find


$
Perfectly Frank's
      A gourmet hotdog unlike anything you have ever seen. If you can dream it, they can put it on a dong
