Charleston: McCrady’s

Frozen Pear Parfait with Crème Fraîche and Farro at McCrady's

We ate a lot of really excellent food in Charleston, but without a doubt, one of our favorite meals came by way of Chef Sean Brock’s McCrady’s.

Chef Brock is currently starring in season two of the PBS series Mind of a Chef alongside another one chef who’s well-known to us, April Bloomfield.


McCrady’s offered a prix fixe menu of four courses for $65.

The diner chooses a first course, a fish course, a meat course and a dessert, which thankfully satisfied my curiosity and want to try everything.

McCrady’s focuses on Southern and local ingredients, but prepares them in unique and unconventional ways. You may see grits or country ham on the menu, but the preparations will be unlike anything you’ve tried before.

The specifics of every dish from the night are hazy, but I think the pictures speak for themselves.
