With nationally acclaimed restaurants and a rich culinary history, it’s no surprise that Charleston is a dynamic dining destination.

Expect sophisticated regional plates like Fried Okra with Pimento Cheese and Tomato Jam; Lardo-Wrapped Wreckfish with Braised Butter Beans, Jimmy Red Corn Grits, and Spicy Tomato Jus; and Ham Hock Terrine with Crispy Pigs’ Ears, Brassica, Turnips, Pickled Radishes, and Mustard.
