The restaurant scene in Charleston rivals that of many major American cities. Southern cuisine; including shrimp & grits, cornbread, fried green tomatoes, and She crab soup; is widely available and yes it is delish! Charleston's repertoire is much broader than just southern fare. Hall's Steakhouse on upper King is as good as it gets and has been consistently recognized as the nation's top steakhouse.  Other stand-outs for Beth Lamm and her fam are the French eateries of Maison and Chez Nous. Have a hankering for Asian soul food?  Try Xiao Bao Biscuit. The farm-to-table movement is huge in Charleston. FIG on Meeting is known for innovative creations with locally produced veggies. One could eat out every night for a year and not repeat a single restaurant in the region!
