Travel: Charming Charleston, Part 2
Posted by Shira Savada
On Friday, I posted some of my favorite venues in Charleston. Today, I'm back with restaurants (with delicious food) great for weddings, rehearsal dinners, Sunday brunches, or just a romantic dinner pour deux!
So, without further ado. . . .some suggestions on where to eat, drink, and be merry (or married).
1 McCrady's: Host your rehearsal dinner here (just like these two did: marthastewartweddings.com/photogallery/giving-thanks). The food is fantastic, and the building is a national landmark.
2 Caviar and Bananas: If you're in need of a caterer, put these guys at the top of your list. This company is part catering kitchen, cafe, event space, and store.
3 Husk Restaurant: Be a trendsetter by hitting up this new spot in town known for its locally sourced ingredients. The guys can head over to the whiskey bar next door if the convo gets too gossip-heavy.
4 Fish Restaurant: Chef Nico Romo infused the menu with regional French cuisine and delightful treats like divine goat cheese spring rolls.
5 High Cotton: Its many rooms come in different sizes, to hold between 15 and 80 people -- all of whom are destined to love its low-country cuisine.
6 Peninsula Grill at Planters Inn: Like coconut? Order Chef Robert Carter's famous "Ultimate Coconut Cake," or get married at the hotel and serve it as your wedding cake. Since they ship nearly everywhere, you could order one every anniversary.
7 FIG: Short for Food Is Good; this place specializes in local, seasonal food (even their menus and paper goods are locally designed by Stitch Design Co.). I was smitten with their cocktails, too.
