Friends of Eater on Restaurant Standbys of 2014

In keeping with Eater tradition, our closeout of the year is a survey of friends, industry types and bloggers. To kick it off in Charleston, Eater asked the group eight questions, ranging from the restaurants they frequent most to the biggest surprises of the year. Responses are in no particular order, and readers are encouraged to leave answers in the comments.

Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas.

Q. What were your top restaurant standbys of 2014?

Hanna Raskin, Food writer and critic for the Post & Courier and author of Yelp Help: How to Write Great Online Restaurant Reviews:
If I’m back at the same restaurant, I’m probably doing it wrong: There are always new places to check out and new dishes to try. But I’ll make an exception for another bowl of Asian noodle soup, so I paid multiple visits to Pink Bellies, CO, Wong’s and Hibachi Grill.

Marion Sullivan, Culinary Institute of Charleston, food editor Charleston Magazine, columnist Post & Courier:
Leon's, The Grocery, Lee Lee's

Brian Wilder, editor The Rakish Perspective and contributor to Eater Charleston:
Hands down, Menkoi Noodle House. Dave's Carryout will always be a favorite, though, no matter how many shiny, new restaurants pop up in the future.

Timmons Pettigrew, author of Charleston Beer and contributor to Eater Charleston:
Saturday brunch noodle bowls at Two Boroughs Larder were an entire food group for me this year.

Erin Perkins, editor Eater Charleston:
For laid-back meals, I usually hit up Warehouse (or at least to grab a deviled egg). My standbys from last year still stand (The Belmont, Two Boroughs Larder, Husk bar) with some Xiao Bao Biscuit thrown in the mix.

Eric Doksa, food and beer writer and restaurant critic for the Charleston City Paper:
Husk Bar, Edmund’s Oast, and AMS [Artisan Meat Share]
