Ok, I'm in Charleston at ate at Cru Cafe last night per recommendations on Trip Advisor and Chowhound. God help me, I had no idea it was so hard to get a consensus on good food in Charleston. In my opinion, Cru Cafe was very mediocre. Luckily, my expectations were not too high going in. I'm going to try to eat at the bar at Fig tonight (couldn't get a reservation). I'm excited as I suspect this restaurant is more in keeping with what a true foodie looks for in a restaurant. That means I have just Saturday night left. Where should I eat. I've made, cancelled, re-made reservations to Circa, Peninsula Grill, the Fat Hen. Ugh. I really don't think I want to go to any of them. This is what I want. GOOD, inventive, perhaps farm to table kind of cuisine. It does not have to be a fancy restaurant but money is most definitely not a factor. If you've been to Baltimore, Petit Louis and Woodberry Kitchen are our favorites.
