Anniversary trip to Charleston
My wife and I are planning trip to Charleston Dec 26 to 29 for our Anniversary. Looking for recommendations for a really nice comfortable Inn or B&B and dinning recommendations. Were are avid food lovers (have eaten at the French Laundry). Looking particularly for great low country and gourmet southern fare. Please post recommendations! Thanks!
We will be in Charleston Dec 23-26, and staying at the King Charles Inn. This is not an inn or B&B, but we feel this is the best value in the Historic District (plus they have free parking). We are having dinner at Magnolia on Christmas Day, and other dinners at High Cotton and Poogan's Porch. They all have websites. FIG and Chef Mike Lata are almost directly across the street from King Charles and Jestine's is next door. For substantially more bucks head to Husk, Charleston Grill, McGrady's, etc. The place we like for breakfast and lunch is Barbara Jean's near the Old Market.

We can't do recs for places to stay on Chowhound. Go to Tripadvisor or Fodors for lots of posts on that subject.
I personally like FIG, McCrady's, High Cotton,or SNOB for gourmet; 82 Queen, Hominy Grill or Jestine's for traditional lunches. I also like Husk a lot, but the hype they've been getting means it's hard to get in. If you want to go and can't get a reservation, go to the bar instead. The complete menu isn't available, but the burgers are great.
Stay away from places that hawk your business on the street.
