Julie's Picks for Dining in Charleston

Hey readers! As you may recall, I'm in the lovely and charming southeastern United States this week spending a little time with my family at the beach in Georgia. Today I am heading up to Charleston to reunite with my hubby and some long lost friends for our dear friend Julie's wedding.

Julie's been living in Charleston for about as long as I've been in Chicago and this will be our first trip there to visit her. She is also super sweet and even though she's been knee deep in wedding planning, sent me a huge list of restaurant recommendations for our visit! I love a girl who can appreciate my love of food.

Hopefully I will be able to share my own reviews of some of these places with you later. In the meantime, here's Julie's amazing list-- bookmark this post for your next visit to Charleston!

Where the Chefs Eat 
  • Butcher & Bee - Great for lunch or late night food
  • 26 Divine - Lunch only. Husband is chef, wife is pastry chef. She carries their baby around while she serves tables. Adorable and so so good! They're making my wedding cake!
  • 2 Burroughs Larder 

Other Non Touristy Places
  • Poes - Awesome spot (also great burgers) on Sullivan's Island
  • Moes Crosstown - Best burgers in town.
  • Hominy - Go here for Southern food.
  • Rue de Jean - Our favorite restaurants. If you go here, you must get the Curry mussels! This restaurant is also great for a group because they have literally everything on the menu and it's a big place, so reservations are usually not hard to come by. 
  • Fat Hen
  • Gaulart @ Maliclet (Fast & French) 
  • Home Team BBQ - There's one in Sullivan's not far from where y'all's crew is staying. If Alex wants wings, they have awesome dry rub style wings. Editor's note: How cute is Julie's "y'all's?"
  • Xiao Bao Biscuit
  • Wild Olive
  • EVO
  • The Tattoed Moose - Get the duck club - best sandwich I've ever had in my life. Featured on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives.

  • Kaminsky's
  • Sugar

Popular Spots
  • Macintosh
  • FIG - a little older but some people say it's the best restaurant in town.
  • The Ordinary
  • Husk - Voted best restaurant in America. Everything is locally sourced.
  • McCradys
  • Jestine's Kitchen - Another southern food option.

New Spots - Haven't been to any of these yet, but they're the newest spots in town!
  • Edmund's Oast
  • Lee Lee's Hot Kitchen 
  • Brasserie Gigi

Thanks, Julie!!
