What Was the Best Dining Neighborhood of 2019?

Local food writers share their thoughts on the year

Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas, covering the food and restaurant scene across North and South Carolina.

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.

Q. What was the best dining neighborhood of 2019?

Marion Sullivan, Food editor Charleston Magazine:
Upper King/Upper Spring

Stephanie Burt, writer and host of The Southern Fork:

Hanna Raskin, Food writer and critic for the Post & Courier:
Johns Island

Parker Milner, Eater Charleston contributor:
The Home Team and Lewis Barbecue corner combined with hip places like Revelry Brewing, classy establishments like Edmund’s Oast or Goat Sheep Cow North, and long standing go-to’s like Santi’s still make the NoMo neighborhood the spot for me.

Vanessa Wolf, Charleston City Paper critic:
Eastside (Not sure if that’s the right name, but the area around the intersection of Spring and Meeting streets.)
