Charleston SC in February..... HELP!!!

Chowhound is all about the food. Try TA or Fodor's for hotels and activity recs.

You want to be ON the radar for your first visit. Try some of the iconic places like SNOB, Magnolia's, FIG, Peninsula or Hank's. You should also enjoy some downhome places like Glass Onion, Page's, Seewee. Hall's has gospel brunch on Sunday. 2 Borough's Larder and Butcher and Bee are also good.

Fat Hen and Wild Olive are both on the road out to Kiawah and both are great chices if you are out that way. Obstinate Daughter on Sullivans is owned by the Wild Olive people.

There are tons of places that are great in Charleston. It will be hard for you to narrow it down.

Thanksgiving Options for Kiawah/Charleston SC

I just saw on FB that Charleston Bay Gourmet is taking orders for smoked or fried turkeys. They do GREAT food.

Thanksgiving Options for Kiawah/Charleston SC

Are you willing to drive into Charleston? Whole Foods, Harris Teeter, and Piggly Wiggly all do complete Thanksgiving dinners. Have you ever had fried turkey?

Thanksgiving week in Charleston, SC

SNOB is a great choice. I've never been to Eli's. Pick the place that has the menu you like best.

Thanksgiving week in Charleston, SC

Two Thanksgivings? You are my kinda person!

I think you've made some good choices. I would suggest that, if you don't go to Ordinary, try to go to FIG instead.

I was never a fan of Poogan's. It was ahead of its time in the 80s, but it's really not on par with the other places you've chosen.

When we went o B&B we took our own wine. They had beer. It's been over a year, so check with them and see if you can bring in what you want.

Enjoy your trip.

Southern Ingredients: What should I pick up when I'm in NC/VA next week

Good job!

The Boar and Castle was famous around these parts. We cruised through there all the time.

Those Guilford Mills grits are the best. Glad you had a good time.

Also, you you can get to the Greensboro Farmer's Market (the curb market downtown, not the big one) David Wright makes and sells delicious minna cheese. If you can't do that look for Palmetto Cheese at Harris Teeter.

That Farmer's Market is great.

While you're here in G'boro go to Coliseum Cafe for some delicious fried okra.

Asheville - Sliced Lemons with Iced Tea

I was a waitress too way back in the day, so I know about side work. I just remember trying to keep those customers happy. Tips are awesome positive reinforcement!

I've had good luck with folding the slice in half and squeezing it like a wedge.

I don't THINK it's an NC thing. I think it's a save-money thing.

Just ask for the wedge.

What to do with vacation okra

I was at a famous Charleston restaurant. The tables had dried okra pods as arrangements on them. : D

Going to Kiawah --dining suggestions

Charleston is not a seasonal town that closes up in winter. Kiawah has year round residents.

Wild Olive gets good reviews. Fat Hen has wonderful brunch.

Like miss piggy stated, there are so many great restaurants in Charleston. Do a search on here, narrow it down to a few and people can help you with choices.

Charleston: some unusual suspects

Are you willing to drive up to North Chuck? EVO is wonderful, full of local people and local food. I can personally vouch for the Pork Trifecta. Big surprise there, right?

Crab picking

It's fun to do on site. Just spread out newspapers and start hammering.

I would also recommend getting your trash out ASAP. Those shells will stink within a day in the heat.

Crab picking

I think because it's messy and tables don't turn over quickly. Just a guess.

NY to Charleston (Kiawah), am I missing anything?

Good job! Glad you had fun. I love the Fat Hen. That duck breakfast dish is one of my favorites.

I'll try those. I can't remember if I told y'all this: Mama helped resettle many of the Vietnamese families that live here. One of her resettlees (is that a word?) has a place called Binh Minh across the street and out a little from Rearn. I like it a lot and go when ever I'm on that side of town.
