Vacationing in Charleston, staying on Johns Island. My birthday is coming up this weekend and would like a nice but non fussy/fancy diner rec.with good pescetarian options. I know that most places will accommodate but still would prefer nothing too bacon based.
Had lunch at Hominy this week and really enjoyed it. Would prefer a diner but are open to lunch as well (though some places aren't). Would rather stay away from Market area or anything too noisy. I heard Cru can sometimes be "horsey" depending on wind direction- really?
Have looked at Cru, Anson, Hanks. FIG was in there until I realized I'm too late for a reservation. Its not necessary but while we're here we'd like to continue sampling local(ish) cuisine. Doesn't have to be downtown Charleston either - seems a lot of gems are on neighboring islands and can be during the week too.
Brasserie Gigi also looks very good?
Your thoughts are appreciated!
