Charleston Restaurant Week!

If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you know that Charleston Restaurant Week (January 7th – 18th) is one of our favorite Lowcountry offerings!  And this year is no exception – the list of incredible culinary options has grown tremendously with several new restaurants opening in Downtown Charleston recently.  Not all of the options are downtown, though.  There are several restaurants in West Ashely, Daniel Island, Kiawah Island, and more.  Restaurant Week deals offer several courses at outstanding restaurants for various reduced price points.  Included this year, too, are great budget friendly lunch options as well!  (Three meats, two sides, and a dessert for $19 at Swig and Swine…yes, please!)

With so many fantastic choices – you really can’t go wrong.  But my personal pick (since you asked…) would be the coziest cocktail bar with an old-fashioned feel – The Gin Joint.  Featured in Garden & Gun magazine as one of the 50 best Southern bars, The Gin Joint is locally owned by Joe and MariElena Raya, and will be offering $10 cocktail + food pairings for Restaurant Week.  Check out their menu HERE and enjoy this week!
