Take the Waiter's Beer RecommendationOne of my primary objectives of domestic travel is discovering a local microbrewery that I had previously not heard of, even in cities not known for their beer, such as Charleston. In this case, we were seated at the Lowcountry Bistro, and I had already settled into the Westbrook IPA as my favored local choice, when our server steered me in another direction. Here is the One Claw Rye IPA, on a napkin printed with the easily recognizable palmetto and moon of the South Carolina flag. It was lighter and lower in alcohol content, and a great suggestion. Isn't that what you want from your waiter? I enjoyed it with hushpuppies drenched in maple syrup, and the classic SC choices of shrimp and grits and fried green tomatoes.

Southern classics in historic area of Charleston
Not a far walk from Whisk and the historic area of Charleston is Lowcountry Bistro, which serves southern classics using fresh and local ingredients. Start with their Shrimp & Grits, made with parmesan chive grits, local tomato medley, and a bacon sauce. Then consider the Coleman Farms Chicken & Waffle, made with a sweet potato bacon cornbread waffle, crispy half bone-in chicken, pecan butter, and a bourbon reduction. It was definitely our favorite dish. We also liked the St. Jude Farms Littleneck Clams and the Fried Green Tomatoes. Photos courtesy of Lowcountry Bistro.
