Had a fabulous dinner at McCrady's a few weeks ago. A friend had been there and gave me a few dishes he liked. We spoke with the chef and he created a multi course tasting..including dishes we wanted and excluding ingredients we didn't want.

Really a remarkable meal and the staff was extremely accomodating. They say a pic is worth a thousand words..here's a few thousand words..:)

Lunch that day was a sandwich at Bessinger's..good pulled pork..meal not quite up to nearby Sweatman's; but we didn't sample a lot..as we had a big dinner planned.

Next day lunch..we wanted to try Jestine's but I don't like to stand in line. We walked over to Fleet Landing and had a very nice lunch of oysters..1/2 shell, she crab soup, seafood gumbo, crab cake and fried shrimp. Nice spot outside overlooking the harbor.

Charleston's a great city and I'd like to spend more time there.

      yes, Sean Brock is the chef...extremely talented young man (aging myself..:))and very gracious; real gentleman.

      The professionalism and enthusiasm of the entire staff was top notch.

        Could not agree more. Lived in Charleston and have tried every place. Love many of them, but the tasting menu by Sean Brock is the BEST!
