6 New Restaurants to Book in Charleston This Spring
What defines Southern hospitality more than a steaming communal table of Lowcountry boil or shrimp and grits? While those standbys, fueled by the bounty of the surrounding creeks and rivers, still form the soul of Charleston dining, the Holy City is expanding its culinary universe. These new restaurants, ranging from the city’s only food hall to an Indian fusion restaurant, pay tribute to Charleston’s history while increasing its global appeal.
Greenwood, South Carolina is a couple hours from the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Atlantic shore. Home of Lander University, Greenwood has the diversity and culture of a college town while still retaining its Southern hospitality and charm. Dining options include everything from down-home country eats to sophisticated, upscale American cuisine. The best bets are places offering a meat and three sides—that way you get to try as much decadent Southern food as possible. Keep an eye out for Mater pie, which visitors will recognize as juicy tomatoes stacked inside a pie crust and covered in melted cheese. If you need something different, you can also try out some Indian, Pakistani, Japanese, Thai and even Amish food. Don’t forget an ice-cold glass of sweet tea to go along with your meal.
