Last Chance to Eat Local and Save $$
If you like to eat and live locally, than you are in for a treat. One of the best unofficial holidays of the year is among us. I am of course speaking about, Charleston Restaurant Week. This year they decided to extend the one week into two weeks, giving the curious and hungry bellys of locals and perfectly timed visitors more time to indulge and experience local cuisine. This special event gives us a unique opportunity to try a new restaurant or go to one a little bit out of your normal price range. This also gives us the opportunity to stuff our faces with 3 course meals with the perfect excuse of being experimental and festive. This epic event began on September 6th and unfortunately comes to an end on Thursday the 21st. But the good news is that there is still plenty of time to procrastinate on your grocery shopping, put the leftovers down and make your way to a local hot spot. Over 60 establishments are participating in this years restaurant week, but today i will be focusing on participants in the Old Village Mount Pleasant area. There are 4 excellent restaurants offering select menus with 3 course meal options. The Granary located on Coleman Blvd is offering a 3 for $35 deal which will save you $$$. Their 3 featured entrees are Swordfish, Pork Shoulder and NY Strip with even more interesting appetizer options. Crave Kitchen located on Riviera Drive has an impressive ensemble of options themselves, also offering a 3 for $35 deal which can save you plenty of cash. They are offering entrees such as rainbow trout, pesto salmon, bourbon maple pork chop and short rib gnocchi. Their appetizers, sides and dessert options will leave your mouth watering. Next on the list is Shem Creek Bar and Grill. This scenic spot on Shem Creek is letting us take advantage of this special event by also offering a 3 for $35 deal. They have delectable entree options such as slow roasted prime rib & fried oysters, fried flounder, lobster & shrimp alfredo, fresh grouper and a select chicken dish. If you are looking for fresh, delicious seafood, then this is the place to take the whole family for a discounted 3 course meal on the creek. Last, but certainly not least is the Old Village Post House. This premier, fine dining establishment is generously offering a 3 for $40 deal.
