Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is the culmination of a partnership between Lettuce Entertain You and Joe's Stone Crab, the legendary seafood restaurant of Miami Beach. Joe's features an extensive selection of seafood, flown in fresh daily, to complement the world's finest Florida Stone Crab claws. Joe's features the signature 16 oz. Bone-In Filet Mignon and 22 oz. New York Strip Steak. Matched with Joe's signature side dishes, dinner only gets better when capped with a slice of the famous key lime pie. Enjoy a generous cocktail in the grand bar or the tuxedo-clad service of the clubby dining room.

"For its first week, Café Deluxe wasn't a bad choice for lunch today. The good aspects include the food and the atmosphere. Try the deviled eggs with crab - delicious. The steak frites are standard, with the steak portion on the generous side...and more flavorful than usual. When the server misheard the order of a member of my party, she was apologetic and flexible, not defensive or inflexible. The air temperature was also much colder than what would be considered comfortable. I rarely complain about this, but it made the experience a bit less enjoyable. Overall, expectations were met, if not slightly exceeded due mostly to the food quality."

Tuscarora Mill, the cornerstone of Market Station, has been serving fine food & wine to its guests since 1985. Originally an operating grain mill, Tuscarora Mill has maintained the rustic interior & charm of the mill. Chef Patrick Dinh’s seasonal menus use the freshest of local produce. Signature dishes include Sesame Roasted Salmon, Roasted Lamb Chops & Portuguese-style Rockfish. To compliment the menu, Tuscarora Mill has an impressive wine list, winner of the Wine Spectacular Award of Excellence for the past 10 years. The in-house bakery, SouthStreet Under, prepares savory breads & decadent desserts daily. Affectionately known to the locals as Tuskie’s, this finer eatery also sports a relaxing bar, serving 22 beers on tap & a café menu. Whether it is a romantic dinner, a casual lunch or a corporate function, Tuscarora Mill will surely exceed your expectations.

Occupying adjacent spaces on Queen Street, Husk’s structures date back to the late 1800s. The main dining room, constructed in 1893, evokes the grandeur of Charleston, and speaks to the transformation of the city over time. Victorian details and turned columns were layered over the original Queen Anne-style façade through the years, and the buildings fell into disrepair until discovered by Husk ownership. The Neighborhood Dining Group President David Howard set into a motion an extensive remodeling effort of both. Although both buildings retain their antique charm and stately character, the renovations imbued each with a modern, minimalist theme. Like the reinterpreted food served within, each space has been laid bare, revealing reclaimed floors, original windows, and exposed brick throughout. The main house features an open kitchen with a wood-burning oven and dining room.

"This was my first visit to Husk and I must admit that I am wondering why I waited so long to try it out. For lunch I had the burger, which was very flavorful and not greasy, despite the fact that it has a generous amount of cheese and pork belly cooked into the burger. The ambiance is very pleasing and comfortable. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. My next trip top Charleston will definitely include a trip to Husk."

High Cotton - Charleston is high steppin’ Lowcountry living. It’s a feeling of warmth and celebration that begins the moment you step inside. You’ll find it in our gracious, knowledgeable servers, expertly prepared dishes and a remarkable wine and cocktail program. From conversation and laughter in our bar to our stylish dining rooms of heart pine floors and antique brick, you'll come to understand true Charleston hospitality. That is, there's always cause for celebration - of our neighbors, our food and drink and each other. It's our great pleasure to share it with you. <br /><br />Enjoy live jazz nightly and during Sunday brunch. Private dining rooms available for wedding, business and social events.

Fiola, Fabio Trabocchi's modern Italian Trattoria, features Italian cuisine with an emphasis on fresh local ingredients from our farms and markets. The menu will change constantly focusing on seasonal ingredients.

"Fiola consistently exceeds expectations each time I dine there, from the moment I walk in the door until the moment I walk out. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The wait staff is accommodating and attentive, even on busy nights like my most recent visit. This week, I tried the four-course Tastings menu, which as usual was filled with mouth-watering delicacies. A must-try when you're dining at Fiola. My guest had the signature lobster ravioli and was left speechless (a common occurrence after a first-timer finishes this dish). I can't say enough about the staff at Fiola. They make sure the dining experience is memorable, even after more than a dozen visits. The chef takes care of the rest."
