Makeover for a Charleston Standard
McCrady's is the Charleston institution where Sean Brock got his start in the city over ten years ago and has a long history as a neighborhood watering hole and pub that stretches back to the 1700s. In 2016, the cozy building, with its brick interior and homey bar tucked away on Unity Alley, got a makeover and was renamed McCrady's Tavern. McCrady's moved next door as is now a ticketed, prix fixe dinner-only restaurant where an ever-changing 14-course menu dazzles and delights. At the more accessible tavern, Brock says he took his inspiration for the revamped spot from the Gilded Age, with old-school items like calf's head soup and veal blanquettes sitting alongside dishes such as "beet au poivre."

One of Charleston's Best
McCrady's, housed in a building that served as a tavern over two hundred years ago, is a great place to get a fancy, creative prix fixe meal. It's also a great spot just to sit at the bar and order a cocktail and some snacks: you still get to sample Sean Brock's food and the low-lit, exposed-brick interior.
