Charleston Revisited

Recommended Posts

I'm not seeing any posts more recently than three years old, I apologize if I've missed something...

Heading to Charleston for a few days and looking for one impressive magical multi-course meal for a goodly sized group (we tend to run 6-10) and several smaller venues for tasty but not as bank-busting.

Also, BBQ. Because BBQ.

Any advice? Anything gone down hill? Any hot new kid doing magic in the kitchen?

Thanks!

Been here a few days. I started with this http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/08/travel/a-taste-of-charleston-old-school-and-new.html?action=click&contentCollection=Opinion&module=MostEmailed&version=Full®ion=Marginalia&src=me&pgtype=article&_r=0

We dined at The Ordinary and it was extraordinary. The seafood tower is stunning, lobster cooked perfectly, oysters sweet (and shucked well) crab Louis and razor clam salad delicious... Sigh.

Virginias has become a go-to for breakfast and lunch. Their she crab soup and fried pickles are outstanding. We also dined at Hominy grill which has a great shrimp and grits. We cpgrabbed a snack at Boone's and the Pim cup and crap cake on crispy chicken skins were yummy.

Tonight: Edmunds Oast

I should have known better than posting on an ipad! Typos!

Another night, another tower, this time of house cured meat at Edmunds Oast. They have been open four months now, and have scaled back their menu a lot. I was hoping for something more like the NYT article, but having made the journey there, I stayed. It was delicious. We followed with corn pudding, yellowtail crudo, picked shrimp toast, grouper, a perfect steak and a lovely chicken porridge that is way tastier than it sounds.
