Sunday Brunch

Hominy Grill has grilled banana-bread french toast, need I say more (there is always a wait)

HUSK's menu changes every week and is fantastic if you can get in

High Cotton is right next door to the gallery (if there's a wait there head to Blossoms, they are very similar and both great)

 

Breakfast

Hominy Grill has grilled banana-bread french toast, I already said it

Rutladge Cab Company is a normal spot and one step up from a greasy spoon

The Vendue Hotel is across the street form the gallery and has a wonderful menu

 

Lunch

Minero is Sean Brock’s pet project for Mexican Food and it is what all the hype says it is. Nothing on the menu is over $10

Pearlz - is a great beer and oyster joint

Lucca - hands down, best italian in Charleston, family nights are the best 

Fulton Five - voted most romantic restaurant for 15 years

Bars We Love

Gin Joint for a really great cocktail They wear suspenders and bowties and can make a killer gin fizz. 

HUSK's bar is in an old carriage house

Edmunds Oast is the best brew pub ever. A few minutes from downtown but well worth it for the food and 50 beers on tap

Bin 152 for a cheese plate and glass of wine. Let them pick it for you, you won't be disappointed 

Social is great if you like a hip-younger crowd and they have an awesome happy hour

Craftsmen is a craft beer bar one block from the gallery with a manly menu. Think finish carpenter who happens to love good food. 

 

Night Life

Upper King Street comes alive after 8pm (grab a bike taxi if you're in heels)

Charleston Grill has live jazz Thursday - Saturday and is a swanky place to start your night

The Vendue has our favorite rooftop bar in Charleston

Cocktail Club is a neat speak-easy style place with a little hidden rooftop as well

 

Kids

The Alley is a bowling Alley with great food - reserve a lane earlier in the day

Taco Boy is a great Mexican spot for kids

Aquarium & Children's Museum are great for the day
