This is for all of my fellow Charleston Foodies out there!
If you're traveling to Charleston sometime soon, Pin this post as a dining guide!
If you're none of the above, then just drool baby drool!
I swear that Charleston is in a "Golden Restaurant Era". There's a new restaurant grand opening every weekend round these parts. They're all good. Real good. It's tough to keep up and even tougher to decide where to eat...too many amazing choices. #firstworldproblems
I bring you 3 of Charleston's newest Italian eateries:
1. Indaco - We had a double date to the grand opening this past Saturday. The service was wonderful, which speaks volumes considering it was opening night. The food was delicious. The pasta is homemade. The menu and wine list offer enough variety to please everyone.
I ordered the Bucatini and
a glass of 3 glasses of way too many glasses of Soave wine.
We shared several appetizers, including: Spanish Mackerel, Butter Bean Puree, Wood-Roasted Squid Salad, and Shrimp.
2. Coda del Pesce - Isle of Palms finally has a good restaurant. It's about time. Mr. BMJ and I heard rave reviews about this new establishment and were dying to see what all the fuss was about it. The owners of the downtown restaurant, Trattoria Lucca, opened this new, local seafood, Italian restaurant several weeks ago. Thank goodness. It's to die for.
The menu changes often, but if they have it, make sure you order at least 12 of the Local Flounder Braciole:
3. Slice - An Italian family opened this little pizza joint. This super picky pizza critic loved it! Though we ate at one of the few tables in the restaurant, it's more of a take-out kind of a place.
They have pasta dishes too. Baby Girl loved her "worms." She's an expert sketti slurper. Who taught her that horrible trick?
Moral of the story is you have to try these restaurants! They're molto buono!
p.s. Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?
1- Because one of my internal gum stitches worked its way out and was giving me serious pain over the weekend. I had to rush over to the office to get it cut out yesterday. Have I mentioned how much I hate gum surgery?
2 - Des actually picked the right guy for her. Chris is kind, down to earth, and handsome. I can even look past his cheesy poems. Thank goodness Brooks didn't come crawling back and ruin everything. I cried during the proposal. I haven't been this happy with a Bachelorette finale since Ali picked Roberto (a Charleston boy).
3 - I'm so disappointed with the new Bachelor. I don't find Juan Pablo cute and have no idea how he's going to fill up 2 hours every Monday night this Fall. Zak would have been perfect.
