Charleston area getting all kinds of Accolades

By on Oct 14, 2011 in Best of Charleston, Charleston Restaurants, Creaturo & Associates Relocation Team | 0 comments

Recently the Charleston area has received many awards and recognition. Yeterday it was announced that Mount Pleasant and Hanahan are the grand winners of South Carolina’s safest communities awards by the Foundation for Traffic Safety of AAA Carolinas.  This year Charleston dethroned San Francisco as the best city in the US  according to Conde Nast Traveler Magazine. And as I posted earlier Husk Restaurant was named Bon Appétit magazine’s September 2011 issue best new restaurant. So if your looking for a wonderful city to call home on the east coast,  look no further. Dreaming about perfect weather? We have that too.  You really need to consider a visit to Charleston South Carolina and anytime of the year is perfect.  We have art, excellent restaurants, shopping and several farmers markets, golf, boating, fishing, history, and the beaches.

Husk is Number 1 Best New Restaurant

Husk is Number 1 Best New Restaurant

By on Sep 16, 2011 in Best of Charleston, Charleston Restaurants | 0 comments

Not even a year old, Husk restaurant is receiving accolades throughout the foodie world.  I love food so Husk will for sure be on my next date night list.  And for a little restaurant to receive so much attention it’s got to be pretty good. According to the latest article in Bon Appetit, the Chef,  Sean Brock ” isn’t reinventing Southern food or attempting to create some citified version of it. He’s trying to re-create the food his grandma knew—albeit with the skill and resources of a modern chef.” Can not wait to give it a...

Phil Vettel Food critic 3:53 p.m. CDT, September 13, 2011 Charleston, S.C., is perhaps my favorite city in the South. Good-looking, friendly and rich with history — its history being especially relevant this year, the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War. And the downtown area is cluttered with one good dining option after another. Which is a good thing, because if there’s a city with worse cab service than Charleston, I don’t want to know about it. Even proud locals get downright apologetic in response to the question, “How can I get a cab?” From your hotel, you can summon a cab to get somewhere, but getting back is, ahem, tricky. So rent a cab, or, if you’ve only got a day or two (as I did this trip), stick to the attraction-packed and eminently walk-able downtown. So, with apologies to the myriad and worthy outlying options, here are my walking-distance picks: Husk Sean Brock’s sedate restaurant-in-a-mansion is the dining spot of the moment, thanks to Bon Appetit magazine, which last month named it the best new restaurant in the country. The dining room is a flat-out charmer, whose ceiling seems as tall as the room is wide, its rustic plank wood floors contrasted by contemporary, gray and silver wall treatments. True to the restaurant’s name, table centerpieces feature jars half-filled with corn feed and a long piece of dried okra. After you devour one or two dinner rolls topped with benne seeds (better known as sesame seeds; the name benne, like the seeds themselves, comes from Africa), dishes to try include a Low Country panzanella consisting of fried corn bread, golden tomatoes and gamey slivers of lamb heart; or the messy but rewarding benne-crusted, barbecued chicken wings. The must-have entree is the pork-shoulder confit, the tender and sweet accompanied by a riot of supporting flavors and textures: spicy-crispy pig ears, smoky field peas and butter beans, bitter mustard greens and tart pickled peach jus. The cheese-and-grits side dish, fortified with mushrooms, contains so much sharp Tennessee cheddar that it’s like a cheese course in cast iron; enjoy it separately, with a glass of red wine. 76 Queen St., 843-577-2500; huskrestaurant.com SNOB My first trip to...
