Please help me pick a (relatively) new restuarant in Columbia, SC. I want to buy a gift certificate for my brother-in-law and his wife to a new restaurant for Christmas. But I live in California... Anyone in the area, please chime in with *any* ideas you might have. Thanks!!

    Maurice's BBQ is not new, but they have opened up some new places around Columbia. Maurice's is a local Columbia BBQ place. This may not be what you are looking for, but I have been to Maurice's, and it's excellent. Better check if they like BBQ, they may already be tired of Maurice's. Hope this helps choppedonion.com

      There's a new restaurant in West Columbia where Mangia Mangia was - Terra. I've heard it's very good. Safe stand-bys in Columbia are Motor Supply, Blue Marlin, Hennesey's, Hampton Street Vineyard, Mr. Friendly's.

      Maurices's isn't everyone's cup of tea.

        Thanks for the replies! Had to make a decision sooner than I expected... but I actually went with Terra. Good to have these other options for future reference, too.

          We haven't had a report from anyone about Terra. What did you think?

            I went to Terra when it first opened. Very good, but kind of slow service. I posted, but now can't remember when it was.
