Yo Sandlappers (?) Gamecocks ... What's the real story?

Chuck | Dec 29, 2002 10:42 AM

For two months you guys assisted in planning for my food journey to Charleston this coming March. I got more than 25 places to check out but sadly only 3 breaksfasts 4 lunches and 3 dinners to use up.

Anyway, I recently posted on the 25 or so places for some other Hounds planning to visit Charleston. Or should it be called Paris? Because it now appears to be a city with more restaurants per squage foot than Paris!

Why do I say this? Well, yesterday, I got my January issue of Gourmet magazine and they have a whole article entitled Charleston's True Grits. And, guess what? Only two, The Homney Grill and 39 Rue de Jean, are mentioned on and in their article .

Here's their recommendations:

Homney Grill
39 Rue De Jean
Il Cortile Del Re
Rosebank Farms Cafe
The Old Post Office
Coco's Cafe
Long Island Cafe
Fulton Five
Al Di La

If you are staying for a while (Perhaps renting a place at the beach for a week? - Lucky you..)

Normandy Farm Artisan Bakery
Olde Colony Bakery
Burbage's Self Service Grocery
The Charleston Farmer's Market

So, what's the story on their restaurant picks vs the ones I've obtained from you guys on (below) based on my personal two criteria - quality and reasonable price - decor aside.

The Wreck
82 Queen
Bakers Cafe
Charleston Grill
Peninsula Grill
Anchor Line
Boathouse on East Bay

Lots of good places (?) So little time.... thanks for some more help.
