I am visiting Charleston in April with six friends (gals weekend) and would like some insight into your best restaurants. Good atmosphere is a must (NYCity and Chicago chowhounders will be present and they love their food), not that worried about price. Great Southern/Charleston vibe on at least one of the nights. Would also love any recs on Brunch and lunch spots.
One last request: places to have cocktails before and after dinner - good hotel bars, jazz joints, restaurant bars...whatever you would recommend for a gang of gals in their early 30's.
