There are many great cities in South Carolina and they all have their charms. However, it’s no surprise that when Redbook magazine did their feature on the “50 Best Dates in 50 States” they chose Charleston.
“Fans of low-country classics like shrimp and grits won’t be surprised to hear how good the food is in Charleston, but thanks to an influx of some big name chefs, it’s become a major foodie stomping grounds. Recently dubbed its Hottest Chef of 2013 by Eater, Chef Frank McMahon, of famous Hank’s Seafood, reveals where you can find him after hours: grabbing a slice of pie at Monza, beer in hand at Closed for Business, late night at Butcher & Bee, at the bar of McIntosh (“The Mac”) or the newly opened Rare Bit.”
Sure, there is a lot more to do than just eat out in Charleston, but if it’s a great date eventually it’ll run into lunch or dinner or after dinner drinks (and if we may be risquee, perhaps breakfast) and you’ll have to eat sometime, right?
