212 E Broughton St, Savannah, GA 31401, USA
Leopold's Ice Cream shop is a great place for a tasty treat on a hot summer day in Savannah. Grab yourself a scoop and head to one of the town's many historic squares to rest on a shady bench and do some people watching.

330 Abercorn St, Savannah, GA 31401, USA
This is a beautiful, historic bed and breakfast located on the charming Lafayette Square. Some say it's haunted as there have been sightings of a Civil War soldier roaming the halls.

The Ordinary has a two-story dining room with an always-packed raw bar where Chef Mike Lata serves some of the South’s best seafood.

In 2010, the Restoration on King opened with a new concept for Charleston: a small-scale luxury hotel that was contemporary boutique, not traditional B&B. The hotel's interiors, with their exposed brick walls and textiles in graphic patterns,...

Top of the list for Charleston eats is The Hominy Grill. Hungry patrons can start off the 30+ minute wait for a table with a mimosa, Bloody Mary, or other signature drinks from the Bar/ToGo window in the front courtyard. I recommend also ordering...

251 Meeting St, Charleston, SC 29401, USA
If you head to Charleston looking for fried chicken, collard greens, and banana pudding, Jestine's Kitchen is a good place to get it. This isn't nouveau fancy southern food--no gourmet touches, just the classics done right.

467 King St, Charleston, SC 29403, USA
King Street has no loss for places to have a nice Sunday brunch. AC's is not one of those places. Known as the college students' hangout for their cheap beers, the mood shifts come Sunday mornings when the same hipsters show up to drink $1.50...

6 Payne Ct, Charleston, SC 29403, USA
Everyone seems to be talking about Chez Nous and, frankly, it’s easy to see why. A meal here feels like dining at your most fashionable friend’s place. The restaurant is tucked away from the main drag in a beautiful Charleston single...

2 Unity Alley, Charleston, SC 29401, USA
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...

232 Meeting St, Charleston, SC 29401, USA
When most people think southern food, vegetables aren't the first thing that comes to mind. But the vegetable-heavy menu at FIG is one of the best in town and the first place I recommend to visitors. This place was great when it opened in 2003 and...

171 E Bay St, Charleston, SC 29401, USA
The seafood-heavy menu at Blossom doesn't have anything too wacky on it: instead, it's made up of classics like fried oysters done up in gourmet fashion. It's a great spot for Sunday brunch.

One of Charleston's oldest fine dining spots, Magnolias has been turning out great creamy grits and gourmet pimento cheese for 25 years now. Try pecan pie for dessert!

698 King St, Charleston, SC 29403, USA
Opened in the Spring of 2014, this local Charleston spot is one of this town's hottest tickets. Leon's has a cozy warm atmosphere, amazing local and regional oysters, and homey classic Southern standards. Owner Brooks Reitz is the guy - tell him...

Charleston, South Carolina ranks in my book as one of America's top food cities. I recently stopped by The Macintosh to try their much-raved about brunch. Chef Jeremiah Bacon (yes, real last name) turns out heart-stopping dishes like rabbit hash,...

76 Queen St, Charleston, SC 29401, USA
At this Charleston hit, James Beard Award–winning chef Sean Brock reinterprets traditional Southern dishes with a steadfast commitment to local and regional ingredients—the restaurant even has its own garden. Constantly changing, the...

The Gin Joint opened in 2010 and was Charleston's first real dedicated craft cocktail spot. Five years later, it's still going strong with its creative drinks menu (including a "bartender's choice" option for the patron who wants a surprise) and...

511 King St, Charleston, SC 29403, USA
With its pressed tin ceilings, exposed brick walls, and extensive cocktail menu, The Belmont could easily be mistaken for a bar in Brooklyn. But the laid-back vibe is pure Lowcountry. The Belmont is one of Charleston's first craft cocktail bars,...

474 King St, Charleston, SC 29403, USA
The classic cocktail list at The Rarebit is hard to beat: Moscow mules served in gorgeous copper mugs, Manhattans with a touch of Benedictine. The food menu is composed of similarly solid throwbacks: a pork chop with mac and cheese and green...

Proof serves great classic cocktails, like Manhattans and Sazeracs, but it's also a good place to get a glass of wine or some beer (fancy or cheap). The rotating snacks menu is small but solid—try a pickled egg.

547 King St, Charleston, SC 29403, USA
Prohibition serves great classic cocktails, like a Blood and Sand and a solid mint julep. The place also serves fancy comfort food (chorizo- and mushroom-studded mac and cheese, pork chop with a ginger-peach glaze), hosts live music and swing...

Callie’s Charleston Biscuits, a mail-order business selling from-scratch biscuits, opened up this counter-service restaurant in 2014. Naturally, biscuits make up a big portion of the menu, with sweet and savory options available...
