We are heading to Charleston to a great B&B and then to Myrtle Beach to visit relatives in the beginning of May. I've been to SC alot and my family is originally from SC but my palate is very NYC. Love Charleston and everything about it...We plan to go to Husk, FIG, High Cotton, Anson's, Hanks, Pearlz/McCrady's for Happy Hour, Gullah Cuisine and Hominy Grill (any other suggestions would be appreciated and I wasn't impressed with Penninsula Grill last time I was down)...More importantly I'm heading to the culinary wasteland known as Myrtle Beach (no offense to the hounders from the area so I apologize for being so harsh). I don't like any of the restaurants in Calabash and was very unimpressed with Greg Norman last time I was down...We are going south MB this time so I looked at restaurants in Murrells Inlet but they all look either pretty bad or God awful! We plan to go to Aspen Grille (good choice?) and cook one night but need another rec.
I don't want to go to a place with a menu with 3 million variations of fried food with a side of frozen veg and baked potato with the sour cream in the individualized plastic container on the side with the sprig of curly parsley for garnish, cuz I can go to City Island in NY for that crap. Also please no chain restaurants. Any help would be SOOOOO appreciated!
