My love for food and real estate run deep in my blood, and, being from Charleston and knowing its rich culinary culture, I have a lot respect for locally owned and operated restaurants. This week, I am highlighting a local restaurant in the middle of the luxurious and vibrant: King Street Historic District.
The Charleston Historic District is a combination of high-end restaurants and extravagant dwellings. This area is quintessential Charleston. The area runs between King Street and Meeting Street from Calhoun Street down to Broad Street.
From shopping, to dining, to antique homes and boutique style hotels, this is a must see for Charlestonians and tourists alike. This area of King Street is closed off to automobiles the second Sunday of every month from 1-5 p.m. With heavy foot traffic, this is the perfect opportunity to sit and have lunch or an afternoon drink at one of the many restaurants in the area, or take advantage of sidewalk sales and the multitude of shops and boutiques on King Street. Second Sunday, as it is appropriately named, is a popular monthly event year-round.
The price tag on a home in this area is set for mostly condominium prices with an average sale price of $300,000 for a 1 bedroom/1 bath. Homes can go up to $3M or more, depending on location, upgrades, and size. Currently, as of November 3, 2016, there are seven homes available ranging from $250,000 to $2.5M.
I recently went to Husk, a locally owned and operated restaurant with national notoriety, to celebrate my birthday. Husk is simply one of the best restaurants in Charleston with a menu created by world-renowned chef, Sean Brock. In addition to the amazing cuisine, there is an impressive bourbon and cocktail menu. For lunch, I suggest trying the Husk Burger. I am an avid burger lover, and the Husk Burger is the best burger in Charleston. This time, having to choose from the seasonal dinner menu, I chose the cornbread for starters and coffee rubbed sirloin with sweet potatoes for the entree. It was an amazing combination of flavors that made me sad when it was over. But it didn’t end there. We went with the coffee caramel cheesecake for dessert. Keeping the coffee palate throughout the meal was a definite win!
