76 Queen St charlestono


See Website

Situated in a 19th-century home, this elegant yet rustic restaurant serves exceptional high-end Southern cuisine. All ingredients must come from the American South in order to earn placement on the menu, resulting in the chefs creating new takes on tried-and-true recipes. Specialties include a fried catfish BLT and bacon cornbread. (Calories tend to not be counted here.) Be sure to check out the porch’s joggling board: a seesaw meets rocking chair meets bench, this piece of outdoor furniture is a Charleston novelty. In an era when unwed couples were rarely left unsupervised, this bench, because of its sloping incline in the middle, causes two people sitting on it to inch closer and closer together until touching. The next-door Husk Bar, which serves artisanal and old-school cocktails, is a great spot for a pre- or post-dinner cocktail.
