I was away in Charleston South Carolina for a wedding. I had one morning/afternoon to myself, and after a friend sent me a note suggesting that one of the hardest reservations in the US to get was located right up the street from my hotel, the game was afoot. Telling me a res is hard to get is akin to Poking the Bear.
After I checked did a little research on the spot, I noticed that the chef had another place in town, but they didn’t do lunch. As all I had available was lunch, I looked online and booked a table for four. It wasn’t that difficult, but I am guessing that lunch on a Friday isn’t the same as dinner Saturday night.
As shown in the photo below the restaurant setting is very idyllic, and full of southern charm. I think this marks the first official appearance of TFMBW on the blog!
A quick section on what we ate.
There was much success
the pig ear wraps (spicy, tasty and “adventurous”)
The pork tenderloin
The shrimp and grits
A few misses
The girls thought their drinks were a little underpoured
The bacon skillet cornbread was dry, and the fat had a little “sour note” to it
The chicken wings were “ok”
The food itself was very good, and very appropriately priced. I think it was about $140 including drinks, tax and tip for the four of us.
