Whether it’s brunch, lunch or dinner, there’s no shortage of phenomenal Charleston restaurants to choose from. We at the Governor’s House Inn have compiled a list for you of a few favorites among locals and visitors. Husk Restaurant Husk is a celebration of southern ingredients. It is centrally located in downtown Charleston, and is the newest offering from James Beard Award-winning Chef Sean Brock of McCrady’s and the Neighborhood Dining Group. The kitchen is led by Brock and Chef de Cuisine Travis Grimes, a Lowcountry native. They explore an ingredient-driven cuisine that begins in the rediscovery of heirloom products and redefines what it means to eat and cook in Charleston. Make reservations here! Charleston Grill This much-loved culinary landmark has perfected the art of dining. You will be greeted like long-lost friends from the moment you step through the doors at Charleston Grill. The servers are trained in the French tradition. Your experience will be truly unforgettable. The restaurant opens nightly at 5:30 p.m. FIG A local neighborhood eatery in the heart of downtown Charleston, FIG serves seasonally inspired cuisine with a commitment to using local and sustainable foods. FIG, which stands for “Food is Good,” works with local farmers, growers and purveyors to source products with integrity, flavor and soul. They incorporate these products into their menus nightly, serving them up in a laid-back, eclectic and unpretentious setting. The FIG experience is about much more than just food. Peninsula Grill It all starts will the very best Lowcountry produce and seafood at Peninsula Grill. Chef Graham Dailey then combines that with the finest ingredients flown in fresh daily from points around the world. The ambience of the restaurant is both refined and relaxed. Be sure to visit Peninsula Grill’s adjoining courtyard as well, which is illuminated by gas carriage lanterns and soft candlelight. It’s open from April through October. Cypress Housed in a historic two-story building on East Bay Street, Cypress opened in 2001. It is led by two-time James Beard nominee Craig Deihl. He uses Lowcountry ingredients to showcase his signature style, offering dishes like Crisp Wasabi Tuna with a ginger-garlic glaze and Certified Angus Beef Filet of Beef with housemade Boursin cheese. And we would simply be amiss if we didn’t mention the wine list displayed in a three-story wine wall! Slightly North of Broad S.N.O.B. is an eclectic Lowcountry bistro that brings together an abundance of local ingredients and thoughtful, expert presentation. There’s a friendly, contagious energy throughout the restaurant where warm service and conversations meld together.
