Charleston Restaurants - when you can't quite afford FIG

Blazniva | Mar 16, 202110:55 PM     11

We're spending 4 days and nights in Charleston in late April. I love good food and that's one of the main reasons we chose to visit Charleston (also warm weather, beaches, architecture and history). In researching the overwhelming number of restaurant options, I've been a little surprised at the prices at the higher end places. And I'm from the Boston area, not exactly cheap. I think we've settled on Leon's Oyster Shop and Rodney Scott's BBQ for a couple of nights. I'm open to suggestions for where to eat in Folly Beach (we'll spend a day there) and Mt. Pleasant (where we're staying), but what I'm really looking for are suggestions for our last night in Charleston, something a little special. I looked at the usual suspects - Husk, FIG, The Ordinary, but I'm having a tough time with the prices. So I'm hoping for recommendations for top-notch (maybe 1B as opposed to 1A?) restaurants that capture the essence of Charleston, but are a little less high end in price. A place with great food, interesting atmosphere and not too formal or stuffy. Outdoor dining would be a plus but not a must. Thanks!
