Re: “10 Charleston restaurant trends that need to end with 2016

There was a time when Peninsula was orgasmic, the lump crap salad with fried green tomatoes, in the beginning with Bob Carter. But not more, I agree with the above comments.

Well said all around. Why doesn't CCP do a teacher, scientist, officer, volunteer of the year?

Re: “An Orangeburg family spawns a loosely connected barbecue empire across S.C.

Interesting reading, definitely. My only slight recommendation is that people refer to the different Dukes restaurants simply as "Pepsi Cola Dukes" or "fire station/Chestnut Dukes."

"Hey, wanna get some Q?"
"Sure. Pepsi plant?"
"Yeah, meet you there."

Re: “Pounce Cat Cafe + Wine Bar has found a fur-ever home on Meeting Street

I don't have high hopes for this cafe. They're not open because they didn't get the proper licenses but they continue to solicit donations via their newsletter and promote their Christmas party (that they can't host). It would have been nice to be notified they weren't actually open before making a several hours trip to Charleston to check them out.

Re: “Three years on, Rutledge Cab Co. has secured its Upper Peninsula spot

I sorely miss the original flatbread, the briskit burger, eggs benedict, and meatloaf(special). The newer items on the menu are good-ish, but not to die for like those referenced.
I used to eat there a lot, but now only once in a while. AND my favorite bartender Paige hasn't been there for a while.

@Abby, this isn't a review. It's a blog post.

Re: “The smoky meats are promising, but some of Swig & Swine's dishes could use improvement

I truly enjoyed my meal in the Charleston, SC restaurant. Their collard greens are, without a doubt, the best I've EVER had in my life. I would go back in a heartbeat. My only suggestion is that they put cornbread on the menu!

Wish I would have been impressed, but I wasn't.

Just looked like the old Charleston Beer Works with a paint job, colored lights and overpriced drinks

Re: “No biscuits? Carrie Morey explains why forgetting them was a big misstep on Top Chef: Charleston Ep. 2

Dinner was also served to Chef Dennis. In fact as you watched the episode, many of the chefs deferred to his judgment on flavor and authenticity.

Re: “Have you visited Extreme Akim's Kingdom Bar & Grill yet?

What about the spacious atmosphere, food menu, attentive service, and what type of music and special events? I'd like to see better reviews than two sentences of what this venue hopes to accomplish.

hollyplay, you can actually buy three biscuits for $5 at the King Street store.

So ironic that Ms.Morey's grandmother was so poor she had to make her biscuits from whatever possible, out of necessity. Now those same biscuits are being sold for $5+ EACH to Charleston's tourists.
