It's time for one of the most highly anticipated culinary events in Charleston! Twice a year for a span of two weeks, some of Charleston's best Restaurants and Chefs unite to offer prix fixe lunch and dinner menus. This event is called Charleston Restaurant Week and is one of my absolute favorite events, making it #luxelistapproved.
This year the fall installment will take place September 7 - 18, 2016. In this post I will highlight some of my favorite restaurants and the menu's they are offering!
Let's start with a Lowcountry Favorite … Slightly North of Broad, also known as SNOB. During Restaurant Week SNOB offers 3 courses for $40 per person, quite the steal. Their prix fixe menu includes your choice of an appetizer, entrée and dessert. Me personally, I will be ordering the Beef Carpaccio, Pan Seared Cherry Point Swordfish and Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse ((double yum!!)). Click here for their menu!
Another Lowcountry Favorite … 39 Rue De Jean. Consistently voted one of the best French Restaurants in town, Rue offers classic brasserie cuisine. During Restaurant Week they will be offering a prix fixe menu of 3 courses for $40. Standouts from their menu are the Fall Squash Plate & Trout Meuniere, can't wait to try both! No trip to 39 Rue De Jean for me is complete without an order of mussels, or moules, with your choice of sauce. My hands down favorite sauce is the Mariniere which is a combination of white wine, shallots and parsley. Not only does it perfectly marinate the mussels, but it's great for dipping the bread in too!

There are a number of restaurants that have not published their Restaurant Week Menus yet, but are some of my favorites ((and best values)), such as:
- Magnolia's, Halls Chophouse, High Cotton, Grill 225, Cypress, Oak Steakhouse, O-Ku and Indaco to name a few

My best advice? Make reservations EARLY! Like now! Don't wait for the menu's to be published, make the reservations as soon as possible.. Once the menu's are published, you can always cancel!
