Mint Juleps and Jambalaya? Yes PLEASE. Charleston has quickly become a hot destination for foodies. As a self-proclaimed foodie myself, I could not wait to try some of this heralded Southern fare. Here are some of my fave go-to spots to nosh and booze when visiting Charleston.
- 82 Queen: The atmosphere at 82 Queen alone is enough to pay a visit. I went for a late brunch and sat in the darling interior courtyard. Try the Jambalaya or the Crab Eggs Benedict! www.82queen.com
- Husk: If you’re a burger lover, you shouldn’t miss lunch at Husk. Their burger is allegedly the best in town. www.huskrestaurant.com
- Fig: Serving up an elevated take on traditional Southern fare, Fig is definitely a must try restaurant spot. It has quickly become a Charleston staple and is my personal favorite dinner I had while in Charleston. www.eatafig.com
- The Macintosh: Upscale casual farm-to-table dining in the heart of Charleston on King Street. www.themacintoshcharleston.com
- Halls Chophouse: Halls does an awesome Gospel Brunch on Sundays and it is such a fun time. Great food, soulful music, amazing service, and libations to cure that Sunday hangover – what more could you ask for? www.hallschophouse.com
