I wanted to point out the picture of the Southern mansion on the left and the three pictures above it. Those pictures are taken at the Boone Hall Plantation, which was the setting of Halle Berry’s first movie, Alex Haley’s Queen. It’s a must to visit if you’re ever in Charleston, South Carolina.
Last December, my husband and I had an amazing dinner at Tristan in Charleston, South Carolina. (We left the kids back at the condo we were renting.) Paul had the wine accompaniment. I had a glass of Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka on the rocks. The menu is below. We ordered variation on the five course menu and shared when we had different dishes. Our favorites were the scallops and the risotto, followed by the starter course and the desserts. The presentation, taste and service were all superb.
You can connect with Tristan on Twitter @tristandining or on Facebook. Call for reservations at 843-534-2155 or book online through Open Table. Tristan is also able to work around food allergies and food sensitivities – just mention it when you make your reservation so your server and the chef can be prepared for your visit.
Hyman's Seafood is THE restaurant to go to when you visit Charleston, SC according to everyone we talked to from neighbors to coworkers. It’s very family friendly. The service is terrific. The amount of food you get is enormous and delicious. And Hyman’s even has a gluten free menu (just ask)!
From upper left going clockwise: Hushpuppies, Grouper with the Gluten Free Prep, their signature appetizer – the Wadamalaw Delight (fried green tomatoes served on grits with a Carolina cream sauce), and a glass of Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka on the rocks with a slice of lemon.
