Charleston Restaurant Week - September, recommendations?

DebitNM Aug 6, 2013 07:44 AM

We are heading to Charleston for our first visit. I have reseravations for McCrady's and FIG set. Now I am looking to add in some dinners/lunches to take advantage of the special pricing for Restaurant Week.

If you have input on which ones that should make the short list, I would be most appreciative.

We are interested primarily if fish and seafood, coming from the hot, dry landlocked state of NM. We are not interested in Asian nor Indian.

A pick or 2 from each of the price categories would be most welcomed!

    Follow up -
    I have reservations for:
    82 Queen
    Carter's Kitchen
    FIG[ not part of RW but still want to eat there]

    We will do SNOB for lunch one day.

    I need one more dinner; trying to decide between:
    Low Country Bistro
    Poogan's Porch
    The Macintosh

    Any input to help put dinners to bed?

      I vote Macintosh. Poogan's Porch is only good for biscuits, i'm afraid I've never heard of Low country bistro. Personnally, I think of 82 Queen and Magnolia's as part of Charleston's culinary past, but that's just me.

        Does anyone know if SNob will serve only a truncated menu during rw?

          No. They will have the regular menu available as well. They all will.

            That's good to know. Around DC, RW is a zoo and the restaurants tend to limit themselves to RW menus and I do my best to avoid RW participants during RW.

              That's what I was thinking. I was in Northampton, MA working during a restuarant week a while back and places that are usually good were barely mediocre. I was starting to think rw is like valentines day and new years.
