Hi all, I need suggestions on where to eat in Charleston. We are heading there in January...brrr...so I won't experience the seasonal highlights as it will be cold. We are looking for great Southern cuisine, but not too fancy as I will have a somewhat unadventurous ten year old with me. In other words, not a stuffy and inflexible establishment. I have no idea how the Southern restaurants are regarding kids, NYC trendy restaurants can be very accomodating in drumming up a pasta dish or such if the Kid doesn't like what's on the menu. If it's the same in Charleston, suggest away the best places to go, and we'll deal.
My husband is a dynamite barbecue cook...mesquite and oak, inventive marinades...so we definitely need a Southern barbecue pitstop if you can recommend one. We would like to stay in Charleston as we aren't renting a car but will rent one if we decide it's needed.
Thanks for your help, love this board!
