Only one Charleston establishment made restaurant critic Bill Addison’s National 38 — but it’s a damn good one. Long-standing Lowcountry favorite FIG sits on the list for the third year in a row, making it a Eater Hall of Fame restaurant. Addison dined at the Meeting Street space on a recent trip to Charleston and reported the food and service to be as outstanding as ever. This shouldn’t come as any surprise from a local eatery owned by James Beard Award winner Mike Lata and helmed by James Beard Award winner Jason Stanhope.
While the FIG dining room got a facelift earlier this year, the restaurant’s commitment to local, fresh plates with killer service has remained since it opened in 2003.
Here’s what Addison had to say: "Only one meal in Charleston? Make it Mike Lata and Jason Stanhope’s paragon, which takes its cues from the Lowcountry’s abundant waters." For more of this critic’s thoughts on FIG, read the his review here.
