Ted's is know for incredible sandwiches and prepared foods, but don't forget about their butcher counter offerings! There's nowhere else downtown - and very few places in Charleston - where you can get the quality beef, all-natural chicken, pork and more that Ted's offers. Plus they make their own pancetta, roast beef and sausage and smoke their own salmon & ribs on the Big Green Egg that sits out in front of the shop. A great locally owned establishment for foodies!
What a great look back at how Charleston's culinary scene has evolved over the past few years and kudos to all who have stuck through the hard times and continue to strive for excellence. Let's just keep our fingers crossed that complacency doesn't set in. The better you get, the harder it is to keep up with the hype!
I have been to both places, and both have their merits and downfalls. Most recently, I went to check out Two Rivers for the first time. They have a nice, but small, outdoor dining area that we sat at for lunch on a beautiful spring afternoon. Inside, the improvements they have made to the space since the former occupants left make a world of difference. My group of 4 had mixed reviews on the food. Chicken sandwiches were good and fries were very good, but the burgers ordered by two in the group were not prepared as requested. And the service was very, very slow. One in our group asked for a list of beers on tap and never received it, even though the others were brought the beers they ordered (although they came when the meal was almost over). Overall, the lunch menu is kind of standard - could use some signature items that are good and consistently well done.
The new Wasabi on Daniel Island is top notch. Excellent food and great ambiance. They even have outdoor seating. Try the Daniel Island Roll and the Lotus Roll!
It's great! Crust is light as air and toppings are delicious. Great job on the interior by local architect Dan Sweeney of Stumphouse (Oak, Fuel, Mercato, etc.). Highly recommend you check it out!
