Sunday brunch in Charleston

I was looking to hit Hominy Grill on December 22nd but it is closed over the entire Holiday weekend. Is there something we shouldn't miss? Thanks!

    P.S. Sorry, when I say Charleston I mean Charleston S.C. I shouldn't be so presumptuous as to think everyone's a mind reader. jb

      I'd probably pick High Cotton for brunch. Not impressed with Hominy the last time we went, so perhaps you're really not missing much. Tristan's is the only other brunch I've tried --OK but not stellar.

      For brunch, I'd try for the earliest seating at Poogan's Porch. Gawdalmighty they have the best buiscuts in the world and the first batches are made with bacon grease. I know that sounds knarly but when you bite into one it is like heaven.

      They have my favorite southern brunch anywhere. It is much campier than Hominy Grill but I think better.

      Second on my list is the blue plate at Jestine's Kitchen.

        How come lots of people put Justine's down? All I hear is 'it ain't all that'... what gives? I looked into Poogan's Porch and am thinking I might do it. I do have a reservation at High Cotton, it's my wife's bday and I was thinking a little snazzier but I haven't totally decided... and I like bacon grease! I hear Hominy Grill is rather 'campy' so Poogan's Porch must be like Gone With The Wind or something...

          As far as decor goes, Hominy Grill is much nicer than Poogans.

          Personally? I love Jestines. The meatloaf and coca-cola cake are to die for. So is the fried catfish and the fried chicken.
