The Travel Channel believes that we have too many restaurants to sample them all on a weekend trip. Fair enough. Their solution? An appetizer crawl. The concept is simple. Instead of spending your evening dining at one restaurant, you get small bites at multiple restaurants. You probably spend the same amount, you probably eat the same amount, but you get to experience more of what the city has to offer. It's a great way to check out a new city anytime you travel! It's also a great way to have a night out in your own town.
Travel Channel suggested McCrady's (excellent choice for bar snacks...check out the Fish and Chips), Hank's, FIG, Amen Street, Closed For Business and Husk. These are all great suggestions, but just in case you need a few more, here you go!
This might not be considered an appetizer spot, and you certainly don't want to go here if you are looking for an extensive menu, but if you like wine, cheese, charcuterie and fresh, warm baguettes, head on over to Bin 152! Nothing is more annoying than a beautiful cheese plate that skimps on the bread. You won't find that at Bin. You will find great selections of their offerings, high quality products and friendly people in a very cool space on lower King.
Charleston Grill is a beautiful restaurant situated inside the Charleston Place Hotel and Chef Michelle Weaver consistently turns out some of the best food in Charleston. Go sit at the bar and enjoy complimentary bar snacks and a deliciously decadent appetizer menu. Everything is a winner on this menu.
Last but not least, The Macintosh. Not content with a regular Happy Hour, they offer a Bacon Happy Hour. Every day they have a new, delicious, porktastic offering for only $5, making this a great stop on your appetizer crawl.
