Charleston, SC Bday dinner. Where to go?

bhop89 Dec 6, 2009 06:01 PM

I'm taking my sister to Charleston after Christmas to celebrate her belated birthday. I live in California, and she lives in SC. The last time we went to Charleston we went to Magnolia's and Cru Cafe. We had a great time that weekend. I would love to treat her to a GREAT dinner, but I'm not sure where we should go. We are both cooks and love a casual feel, but I'm willing to spend high, medium, or low to give my sister a great birthday dinner. Thanks for your help.

    I live in Charleston, My recommendation would be Trattoria Lucca~especially his Sunday night family dinner however I love his menu choices.

    Pane e Vino
    La Fourchette

    Have fun!!

      Look into chuckeats.com for a generous review of chef Brock's efforts at McCrady's. Here is a guy who dines around the world and calls McCrady's one of a handful of great restaurants in the US.
