Fabulous lunch in Charleston yesterday

Hey Chowhounds- had a great lunch yesterday at Palmetto Cafe in the Charleston Place. I have eaten there before, but yesterday blew me away. I always !get their gazpacho, which has red and yellow gazpacho with thinly sliced cucumbers around the side of the bowl, but yesterday it wasn't on the menu yet. So my friend and I decided to split two salads, the Crab and Avocado salad and the Grilled Shrimp Salad. The waiter was very pleasant and said he would have them split it in the kitchen- when they brought our order, our"halves" were HUGE. There must have been a pound of crab on both of our plates. Our "grilled shrimp" resembled lobster tails, they were so big! And they had great flavor- don't know what they marinate them in before grilling. If anybody knows their recipes for either salad, please post it or send me the link. We ate in the courtyard with the fountain and it was the best Charleston lunch ever in my 25 years of Charleston lunches! If anyone is planning on shopping on King Street or the Market, this is a great spot to refresh! vpholmes
