    1. i have a really lengthy post on my honeymoon from charleston a few weeks ago...
      if money is no object, then the ocean room was awesome...
      otherwise, FIG.

      one that we really wanted to try but didn't was cordavi--that menu looked really good. another was mccrady's, which was a little too avant-garde for my wife's tastes.
      have fun--it's a great city!

      1. There are two that are worth it: either McCrady's, as HellsSoxHound mentions, or Fulton Five.

        Just as a side note, a lot of the splendor of Charleston rests in the "downhome" charm of the place. Thus, a lot of the best meals can be found in more simple joints, as opposed to the overpriced, over-hyped restaurants.

        Cru Cafe (right off the Market) is one in particular...

        1. I've said it before and I'll say it again. COCONUT CAKE at the Peninsula Gill!

          Even if you hate coconut, you will like this cake. Also comes in a cocktail form!
