Charleston - Gluttons Paradise or Indecisive persons nightmare - Help!

Hi Chowhounders!

After three years of talking about it we are finally going to Charleston and Savannah.

I have a short list and a few blanks so i thought i would be try and get some moral support from the board, what a tough food decision requiring city!

Day One

Lunch - Martha Lou's Kitchen
Dinner - FIG (reserved)

Day Two

Late Breakfast - Hominy Grill
Lunch - Butcher and The Bee
Dinner - McCrady’s (Reserved)

Day Three

Breakfast -
Lunch - Husk or Snob
Dinner - Macintosh (Reserved)

Day Four

Breakfast -
Lunch - Xiao Bao Biscuit
Dinner - Cru Cafe (Reserved)

Day Five

Dinner - Not sure

Day Six

Dinner - Not sure

So i am short on breakfasts and two dinners. I am not sure if so much fancy food (shocked that i just said that) will smash my appetite near the end of the trip or if i should suck it up.

I was thinking about the ordinary which for some reason does dismal on urbanspoon as another dinner option.

Can anyone help me out? What fancy food or casual/comfort spots should i fit in given my reservations?

I am open to changing what i have and i also feel like i am shortchanging local cuisines; BBQ, Gullah, traditional low country.

My visit has me doing a couple day trips up ashley river way and North to Georgetown/Pawleys as well then working my way down to Savannah maybe i can get my local fix around these areas.

Apologies for my rambling post I cant wait to get down there. I really love these forums and i know Charleston can feel like its been beat to death buuuuttttt its always someones first time :)

Thanks
