"A welcome addition to the area," Junction Kitchen and Provisions, received a glowing review from City Paper critic Allston McCrady last week. The Spruill Avenue storefront serves a "creative menu" of "indulgent breakfast items all day long" and other approachable items, like tacos, salads, and sandwiches. McCrady predicts this will be the new brunch hot spot for locals:

The Junction is a positive addition to an already buzzing Park Circle food scene. With its low price points and full bar serving local brews like COAST's HopArt, heirloom tomato Bloodys, and mason jar cocktails made with local peaches, lemon thyme, honey, and rum, the Junction is bound to become a new go-to brunch spot for weekenders.

She likes the spot so much, she concludes, "Their talent, and the demand for their food, deserves expansion."

Charleston Scene critic Hanna Raskin visits King Street standby Poogan's Porch to see how the 39-year-old restaurant stacks up. Raskin finds up-to-date dishes, handsome plates, and plenty of biscuits. While surrounded by tourists in the elegant dining rooms, she thinks,

Really, those servers are saints, as I realized when I heard a diner ask his server, "What is Lowcountry?" They deserve more Charlestonians at their tables. And if altruism isn’t your thing, I can promise you a very nice meal.
