Great Lunch Spots in Downtown Charleston, Part One

Great Lunch Spots in Downtown Charleston, Part One

Great Spots for lunch in downtown CharlestonThere are so many fantastic restaurants in downtown Charleston and plenty of places to read about them! We don’t pretend to be culinary experts, and this is by no means a complete list of great downtown eateries. We do, however, have to find a place to lunch everyday near our downtown office, The Real Estate Studio. We thought a short series of some of our favorite spots would be fun to compile.

IMG_4863The Watch Rooftop Kitchen and Spirits sits on the top floor of the newly renovated The Restoration Hotel located at 79 Wentworth Street.  Enjoy 360 degree views of the Holy City while sipping a handcrafted cocktail or enjoying a skillfully prepared meal by Executive Chef Chad Anderson.  We had to try the cauliflower soup since it was actually recommended to us in the elevator ride to the 7th floor, and it was worthy of the praise. We also ordered the pimento cheese burger with house made pickles and it was the perfect size to split, especially the rich (and delicious) soup.  The food was great, but the real star here are the amazing views from every angle. We can’t wait for warmer happy hours on the deck and sunset vistas.

Eleve lunchThe Grand Bohemian Hotel brings bohemian elegance mixed with southern charm to the corner of Meeting and Wentworth Streets.  Dine on American cuisine while enjoying spectacular views of Historic Charleston from the 4th floor restaurant and bar Eleve.  The quirky interior boasts a super glam style, with mismatched chandeliers and brightly colored chairs and beautiful, luxurious finishes. The interior is flanked by two vibrant bars on either end, you can also take your drink outside while enjoying the fresh air on the funky rooftop terrace.  Afraid of heights?  Maison Cafe, on the first floor, is an adorable place to grab a quick lunch, delicious pastry, or a hot cup of coffee. It’s not quite as glamorous as it’s upstairs neighbor, but the food is great and the decor is clean and colorful.

Barony Tavern, at 68 Wentworth Street serves eclectic American cuisine created by Executive Chef and owner Robert Carter in a sophisticated hunting lodge inspired setting.  Some of the art was created by local artists and many of the taxidermy pieces came from a good friend of Carter himself.  Each piece brings a unique personality and flair to classic fine dining.  Barony Tavern is open for lunch, dinner, and of course cocktails. You owe it to yourself to try the toasted farro salad, and the grilled cheese (with pimento cheese and pepper jelly) is decadent and delicious. There’s even a fox wearing a monocle and bow tie, who oversees the action at the bar.  Bonus!
