I will be visiting my girlfriend's family in Charleston soon. I plan to take them out to dinner one of the nights we are visiting, and would love an impressive recommendation. A few stipulations:
1) I am an admitted foodie. I live in San Francisco and love to go out to eat, so I'm a bit particular about where I eat. Consequently, I am picky about where I take my girlfriend's family to eat.
2) Her sister is a vegetarian, so, if possible, it must be friendly to our non-meat-eating friends.
3) I've read the charleston recs on the boards and have found the menus on many of recommended places to be ok. It seems most people like Cru, Fig, SNOB, The Mustard Seed, Peninsula Grill, Hank's, etc, etc. Those menus look fine, but what places have not been mentioned? I'm sure Charleston has more to offer. Or maybe that's the best of the best? In which case, how do we feel about Cru?
And one more question, the website for Muse is a bit, umm, tacky. Of course, it would be remiss to judge the place solely on their website. How is the quality of atmosphere and food?
