Savannah and Charleston with a baby

peabody_bites | Aug 17, 201401:18 PM     3

Hi All

My husband and I will be in Charleston and Savannah in November with our young daughter (5 months old). This will be our first trip with a baby outside Europe (we live in London), so we are still working out what is considered acceptable in the South because, at 5 months, I consider her too little to be left with a sitter while we go out to eat.

We are both enthusiastic and well travelled eaters and would normally be looking to try a mixture of excellent / fine dining places (e.g. Husk) and more relaxed restaurants (seems like TBL / Cru Cafe / Hominy Grills might be those sorts of places) or holes in the wall (which I'm still researching. What I'm looking to understand is what Chowish places would be welcoming of a (small, well behaved) baby, particularly at lunch time, and where it would be unacceptable to take her. It goes without saying that we aren't interested in ruining anyone's meal and would take her out if she was upset.

All input most welcome. Many thanks
