Fleet Landing (Charleston, SC)

Setting Charleston’s Best Waterfront Restaurant has a view that is a distinctive destination unto itself. Housed in a 1940s retired naval building on the east side of the Charleston peninsula, Fleet Landing Restaurant features classic and contemporary Southern seafood fare in a setting that celebrates the area’s waterfront heritage. The restaurant’s “maritime chic interior” caught…

Rodney Scott’s BBQ (Charleston, SC)

After a day of touring Charleston and walking way too much and taking way too many pictures, we decided to swing by Rodney Scott’s on the way out of town. The setting was newish with a white subway tile lined, brightly lit interior punctuated by a silver, disco ball in the center. A promising smoky…

Leon’s Poultry & Oyster Shop (Charleston, SC)

Who knew some of the best fried chicken I’ve ever tasted would come out of a renovated garage in Charleston, SC? Let me start at the beginning. (I dare you not to hum the song!) One Friday morning, my husband suggested we go to Charleston for the weekend. We needed to get out of town….

Husk: BBQ

The Story It was a rainy, cold New Year’s Day and the family was out of town. Obviously, I wasn’t cooking anything (holiday = break) so Chris suggested we check out Husk: Smokin BBQ. It was previously a regular Husk eatery based off of the original Husk venture in Charleston, South Carolina. We’ve had great…

Old Ebbitt Grill (Washington, DC)

If you know anything about me you know I enjoy beautiful aesthetics, great food and people watching. The ability to spot VIP’s in Washington, DC, is one of my superpowers. It’s a gift. Old Ebbitt Grill, located down the street from the White House, fits the bill. When I lived in the city back in…

Weekend Travels: White House Christmas Tour 2020

I’ve always had a fondness for Washington, D.C. ever since I lived there from 2010 – 2014. With history, shopping and a great culinary scene, what’s not to love? It’s a transient place but I still have a few friends in the area. When one of my friends told me she had tickets to the…

Eating Our Way Through Greenville: Fork and Plough

This is another of those relatively new, farm to table spots that keep popping up around Greenville. They describe themselves as an “all-in-one restaurant, grocery store, and butcher shop.” I heard good reviews from colleagues who hosted a lunch there so Chris and I decided to check it out one Saturday while we were out…

Christmas 2020: Year of the Leopard

It’s that time of year. Time to scour the garage for all the Rubbermaid totes containing Christmas decorations from previous years and hunt for the perfectly priced (affordable + appropriately full) live Christmas tree. We always had a real tree growing up. Nothing says Christmas like the smell of a Douglas fir tree! I decided…

Review: Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant (Sevierville, TN)

Hearty Southern comfort food in a casual environment with signature apple fritters. We decided to take a fall weekend trip to Tennessee. As everyone can attest, this year has been one of the worst in recent memory which prompted the need to escape to the mountains for a couple of days. We aren’t major nature…
