Established by a trio of New Orleans ex-pats, the Glass Onion fashions a taut bond between Charleston and its sister city, dishing up beaucoup seasonable, Southern eats. Take a peek at the menu: deviled eggs, overstuffed pimiento-cheese sandwiches, meat loaf, and fried catfish po'boys, and sweets like bread pudding with whiskey sauce. Yep, it's decidedly Southern, and decidedly dreamy. The Saturday brunch (10–3) is a must, with fluffy buttermilk biscuits and gravy,
and 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.
