Re: “Charleston Grill

I went here last weekend to celebrate a new job, and as such my girlfriend and I opted for the 6 course tasting menu with pairings. It was COMPLETELY worth it, and this would easily rate in my top three meals, arguably the best, I've ever experienced in Charleston (be warned... it's definitely at the top of the list from a total bill standpoint). The standout were a crab cake course and the dessert, which was a sort of sweet potato biscuit surrounding cinnamon apples sprinkled with toffee and whipped butter, but no course disappointed. The most interesting was an ahi tuna sashimi dish with a greek flair, including feta? and olives in the topping...

Our server's work was beyond reproach - knowledgeable and friendly without being overbearing in the slightest. The meal was well timed and perfectly portioned. With two amuse bouche courses (one pre-dessert) + a little celebratory chocolate at the end our six course meal was really more of a nine course feast, yet I left the restaurant feeling satisfied but not full, tipsy but not drunk...

With all the Husk's and other new restaurant parading across the pages of the City Paper and other's it's easy to forget the classics like Charleston Grill, but I'm very glad I was able to get a meal in here before moving away.

Re: “City Paper 2010 election endorsements

If I remember correctly, you used to profile all the candidates objectively and then list an endorsement... I thought this was quite useful and relied on it heavily for the less publicized races. When/why did this change? I was sad not to see everyone profiled when I opened this week's papers.

Agreed! You're on a bike... it takes ten seconds to round a block on the one way streets...

Re: “Sesame Burgers & Beer

How anyone could rate the burgers as "ok" obviously hasn't had the Italian and/or the new zealander... My only complaint is the prizes for trivia night are pretty weak...
