We will be headed down soon for a short trip to Charleston.We always try to hit at least one new spot.Robert Carter's new venture looks like its worth a try.Anyone been there?

    Surprise! I have, lol. I liked it very much. The baby kale caesar is better than it sounds. The setting is lovely. You have to park on the street, since the lot is for the guests at the inn.

      Sue,I knew we could count on you.I'm a little suprised the folks in I'on would plant one of Charleston's most renown chefs in the middle of that neighborhood.I thought the last thing they would want would be tourist traffic.

        See, I think it's the opposite. The Inn is just off Mathis Ferry, so it's not deep into the neighborhood. And I think the residents like having a great restaurant within walking distance.They don't have to go into town for an excellent meal. And it's in the Inn so they knew tourists would be there anyway.

        There's another good place just before the entrance to I'on. It's called Langdon's. I've been twice and it's great too.

          Husband and I had lunch recently at Langdon's and enoyed our meal. Will go back again.

            It's nice, isn't it? Their new place, Opal, is nice as well. It's in that center behind Target, across from basil.
