Fodor's Review

With a backdrop of classic French-bistro style—gleaming wood, cozy booths, and white-papered tables—Charleston's trendy set wines and dines until the wee hours here on such favorites as steamed mussels in a half dozen preparations. Order them with pomme frites, as the French do. Each night of the week there's a special, such as the popular bouillabaisse on Sunday. Rabbit with a whole-grain mustard sauce was so popular it jumped to the nightly menu, while the burgers have a well-established following. If you're seeking quiet, ask for a table in the dining room on the right. It's noisy—but so much fun—at the bar, especially since it has some of the city's best bartenders.
