Fodor's Review

Established by a trio of Louisiana ex-pats, the Glass Onion fashions a taut bond between Charleston and New Orleans, dishing up beaucoup Southern eats. Take a peek at the menu: deviled eggs, meat loaf, fried catfish po'boys, and overstuffed pimiento-cheese sandwiches, along with sweets like bread pudding with whiskey sauce. Yep, it's decidedly Southern, and decidedly dreamy. The Saturday brunch is a must, with fluffy buttermilk biscuits and gravy, and savory pork tamales, but get there early, as they often sell out. The meals are set on sheets of brown paper that drape the restaurant's wooden tabletops, another clever touch.
