Charleston is regularly recognized as the No. 1 City in the World and No. 1 City in the U.S., and the Holy City does have everything: history, beauty, architecture, culture, beaches and, of course, incomparable dining.

Having a meal in greater Charleston is an experience few other cities can match. Unlike New York or San Francisco — cities Charleston has outdone in the “Best City” competition for the last five years — the Holy City is a relative newcomer to the haute dining scene. Nonetheless, the dining venues are outstanding and the service superb. When paired with the incredible number of historic plantations and mansions, it’s little surprise the Charleston Convention and Visitor’s Bureau brags that “Charleston tastes as good as it looks.”
