Charleston Dinner Suggestions

Jump to last reply

Hi there! I have hotels booked for a 3-night Charleston and 2-night Savannah trip in late April, and am now working on restaurant reservations after reading a multitude of great trip reports on Fodors. Just from my initial research, I can see there's too many restaurants I'd like to try during our trip (it'll be me and mom), so I'd love some help narrowing down the options. I know my mother will want to dine simply during the day (would love to find a nice bakery/cafe similar to Olive & Gourmando in Montreal), but for now am focusing mainly on dinner. These are a few I'm considering so far for dinner (or possibly lunch, if they are better afternoon destinations):

SNOB
Eli's Table
Blossom
Magnolia's
Cru Cafe

I know they're well-known, but Husk and Fig didn't really call to me as much as I expected when reading the menus. But if you had only three dinners in Charleston, which of the above would you choose? Or do you have another suggestion? We'll be staying in the historic district, so anywhere we can walk to would work. And neither of us drink, so wine list is not important. But we love fresh, local foods, and don't have strict restrictions other than well prepared food (and not so pricey that dinner ends up costing hundreds of dollars. My mother would not enjoy that even with me paying!) Thanks!
