Charleston Memory Lane Voyage

Returning to Charleston for a week on IOP after a very long absence. My wife and I are escaping the kids for a mid-week night out at the end of August. Some of our favorite restaurants from the early 90s were: Granville's (Beaufain St), Lafayette (lower King St.), McCrady's (before they went all gastronomical), SNOB, Marianne (Meeting St.), Liberty Cafe (W Ashley), and The Wreck on Shem Creek. What would be a good place for a French bistro or contemporary southern along the lines of the aforementioned?

  1. For French bistro, I love La Fourchette on King St. Duck fat frites! Yum!

    1. I agree w/ La fourchette. Way better than Rue de Jean, IMO. I think current McCrady's is even better than early 90's McCrady's. It's a bit more light-hearted.

      1. Magnolias is not on your list? One of my "not to be
        missed" places for Charleston
