Charleston Gift Certificate Conundrum

veganhater | Jan 23, 2014 02:08 PM

Going to Charleston this Sunday for a few days and have gift certificates for Hank's and Magnolia's/Cypress/Blossom. The only one of the four I've been to is Magnolia's, and although it was some time ago I was underwhelmed. With only four dinners, would any of those make the cut or should I use them for lunch? My other candidates are Fig, Ordinary, Macintosh, McCrady's and Tristan. Also, is Bowen's Island worth a dinner? I love oysters and beer, but we have good places in eastern NC for that. I'm not worried about the price of Bowen's, but does the experience warrant a dinner slot? Can you take a taxi there and back without spending a fortune?
