Weekend Update: Charleston

I'm just returning from the most amazing bachelorette weekend in Charleston celebrating my good friend Stephanie.  I had never been before and while I was anticipating some beautiful scenery, I had no idea what I was in for in the food department.  It was an absolute culinary delight and I can't wait to go back and try more places.  I had the hardest time picking the best pictures, so bear with me on this lengthy post. 

Friday night we went to SNOB (Slightly North of Broad) and were lucky enough to sit at the Chef's table, all facing the kitchen.  The chef sent over delicious crab salad on toasts right away, followed by a feast of bread, a beautiful cheese plate, and for me, a filet and crab cake (thanks to my friend Lindsey going halfsies with me!).  

The perfect Cheese Plate: beer cheese, goat cheese, and bleu with grilled toasts, fruit and nuts.

Saturday we took a trolley tour of Charleston and i'm so glad we did.  We had a great tour guide who kept us well entertained. 

Saturday night we went to Stars for dinner.  Everything was stunning, from the atmosphere to the wine glasses.  After dinner, we enjoyed cocktails at their rooftop bar. 

Their specialty is lobster and grits - yum!

We couldn't decide between desserts so we went with three: Chocolate Pluff, Lemon Custard with Candied Blueberries, and Creme Brulee. 
The beautiful bride!

Can't wait to go back!
