Foodie Travel: Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston is becoming one of the hottest foodie destination in the south. It has numerous chefs who have been nominated and won James Beard Awards for excellence in cuisine. If you are thinking of taking a trip to this beautiful, southern city, be sure to make reservations (and make them early because they book quickly) to some of  these restaurants.

Husk

Reading the menu will make you hungry. James Beard Award-winning Chef Sean Brock changes the menu with what ingredients are in season. Located in a charming, historical Charleston building, Husk prides themselves on their farm to table cuisine. Their motto: “If it doesn’t come from the South, it’s not coming through the door.” The kitchen did not disappoint on my visit. The wait staff was great; very helpful in describing the menu items and steering you to choose what you are craving. Husk makes my favorite restaurants list!
