Eat Like a Local: Charleston, SC

charleston

charlestonA visit to the Charleston Wine + Food Festival guarantees more than just amazing food. Taking in the scenery of of this breathtakingly beautiful and charming city is treat enough. However, one of the best ways to see the sights this beautiful city has to offer is to eat your way around town. Carrie Morey, the baker extraordinaire behind Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit, has long been a friend of Taste of the South. We love her take on baking and on life, from her fantastic spirit to her insistence that everyone in the kitchen wear a colorful bandana! We asked Carrie to tell us how to eat like a local in Charleston. Here’s her list of must-eats when visiting the Holy City.

Fig

 “The food is simple yet complex. It’s delicious and elevated, yet not fancy. When I eat there I feel like a kid on Christmas morning!”

Lucca

 “I love that the house-made pasta is actually rolled out on the very tables where you dine. There is something so comforting about that.”

Chez Nous

 “My favorite spot for a romantic lunch, the space is adorable and the menu only has six items, which change daily. It takes me back to Paris.”

Minero

“Charleston has long needed a good Mexican joint. I love how Sean Brock has made Southern and Mexican staples collide—like the roasted okra taco!”
