Peninsula Grill

Charleston, South Carolina, is known for a few things: southern charm, great seafood, and coconut cake - OK, maybe that last one is specific to Peninsula Grill.

Peninsula Grill
Peninsula Grill is a high-end restaurant that promises an exquisite experience.

“Peninsula Grill has the sophisticated feel of an urban eatery without losing sight of its Southern charm. The menu is inventive, offering boldly flavored dishes spiced up with Lowcountry accents like collard greens, hushpuppies, grits and black-eyed peas. There’s also a champagne bar menu of decadent little treats like oysters, lobster, foie gras, caviar and duck pâté.” — FORBES TRAVEL GUIDE

And the main reason for going: The legendary 12-layer ultimate coconut cake.
