Comment Archives: Stories: Best of Charleston: Eating & Drinking Out

Re: “Best French Restaurant

I hate to break this to everyone... but just because Rue de Jean has a French name does not make it a French restaurant. Their menu includes sushi. What about La Fourchette? It is owned and managed by an actual Frenchman, trust me go in there and he will come and speak to you at some point during your dinner. What about Fast & French? Or even Fat Hen or Fish for goodness sake?

As far as "best French restaurant," this is not only a poor choice but an insult to the authentic and wonderful French restaurants that Charleston has to offer.

Re: “Best New York Style Pizza

Apparently the "New York Style" refers to nouveau cuisine from a northern English city. I'm from New York and Andolini's is not like anything I've ever seen either in the city or in the more mundane regions anywhere in the state. Perhaps a qualifier should be that before voting on New York style pizza, you must actually know what it is. But, alas, if that philosophy were to be emplaced on all "Best Of" categories, it would permanently skew all of the results we've grown to expect..........Nevermind.

Re: “Best New York Style Pizza

You know, it's really funny... I've eaten Andolini's pizza and it's ok - if you've got the munchies and have an uncontrolled urge for anything to fill your stomach. Last year, I made a trip to NYC and while I was there, I ate at the place where Sabatino spent years "learning the trade". It was "to die for"! I've only had better pizza in one place - Italy. I'm here to tell you that I couldn't taste any real difference between NY pizza in NYC (the Bronx) and NY pizza at Sabatino's. Sab's pizza is, by far, the best place in town and the ONLY place in town to get real NY pie.

Re: “Best Chef

Brock's double cheeseburger is one of the best I've ever had. Not sure I understand the California spin (In-N-Out) at a restaurantly so overtly committed to local and regional cuisine, but I'm not complaining either.

Re: “Best New York Style Pizza

This pick is ridiculous...Andolini's isn't even in the top 10.

Let's see....Sabatino's, La Pizzeria, and on and on and on.

Andolini's is dog crap pizza...

Re: “Best Wine Selection (Retail)

Accent on Wine in Summerville may be small, but the quality is fantastic.

Re: “Best Sub Sandwich/Hoagie

obviously, voters have never been to a deli or sub shop in NJ

Re: “Best Wine Selection (Retail)

No love for small business here. Large selection of wine doesn't mean good selection of wine.

Re: “Best Chef

Do you think Brock could make a double cheeseburger? I don't think so....He's out of his apron.

Re: “Best Sub Sandwich/Hoagie

it is painful to see true enuff. Try a sub/hoagie at Philly's there is no comparison. If you can stand to not have a cheesesteak that day. Better yet, just get both ! :)
