The Washington Post recently visited the Lowcountry and put together a piece about the Charleston food scene and its iconic dish, Shrimp and Grits. The video features some of Charleston’s top restaurants, including one of my favorite spots, Minero.
Washington Post Food Critic Tom Sietsema also featured Charleston in his monthly series that highlights the best food cities in America. He starts his visit at another of my favorite Sean Brock joints, Husk, where he tastes the fantastic cornbread, benne rolls, pig ear lettuce wraps, and (again) shrimp and grits.
He visited 18 other Charleston restaurants, like Martha Lou’s, Edmund’s Oast, and Leon’s, among others and has mostly positive things to say, although he says that the service in Charleston “lacks polish.”
“The best and brightest [in Charleston], I found, have come up with creative ways of serving tradition.”
