Charleston Restaurant Week 2018

Charleston Restaurant Week 2018 is almost here! My favorite time of year runs from Jan. 29 to Feb. 3. These Charleston restaurants feature a three-course meal for one person for $30. Many restaurants have more than just the two options listed below. Beverages and tips are not included in the price of the meal. Calling for reservations is strongly recommended. For more information on the event, visit cwvrestaurantweek.com. And, use #cwvrestweek in your social posts to join in the convo. The ones in italics are the ones I plan to attend!
