Charleston, SC Edition: Magnolias Restaurant

By Candace Nelson - 10:00 AM

MagnoliaSometimes, a quiet lunch alone, overlooking a busy street while dining on delicious food is exactly what I need.

MagnoliaAt Magnolias, you can experience upscale southern cuisine in a lovely atmosphere.


"In 1990, Magnolias ignited a culinary renaissance when it opened in Charleston, S.C. paving the way for countless other restaurants across the South. Today, led by chefs Don Drake, Samantha Blagg and team, Magnolias remains a forerunner in upscale Southern cuisine, blending traditional ingredients and cooking techniques with modern flair for artful presentations. The soul of the South meets the spark of innovation in dishes such as the Down South Egg Roll stuffed with collard greens, chicken, and Tasso ham, served with red pepper purée, spicy mustard sauce, and peach chutney and Shellfish over Grits with sautéed shrimp, sea scallops, lobster, creamy white grits, lobster butter sauce and fried spinach."

I had two of my favorite of my favorite meals: appetizers and dessert.

MagnoliaBut first - there's ALWAYS bread. Always. And you'll never hear a complaint from me.

MagnoliaAnd then I went with the homemade pimiento cheese with "Charleston" flatbread. It was quite the presentation.

MagnoliaAnd for dessert, I ordered the raspberry sorbet - perfectly refreshing and a sweet last bite.
