Free! A Chef’s Guide to Undiscovered Charleston

Where do Charleston Chefs eat?

Bertha’s is a favorite of Undiscovered Charleston founder Chef Forrest Parker’s. It’s been recognized by the James Beard Awards and their okra soup has been named by Garden and Gun magazine as “One of the 100 Southern foods you must eat before you die.”

Guests on our Undiscovered Charleston: Food History Walking Tour often ask me where to go for a fine dining dinner. Other times, guests will ask where I (or other chefs like me) like to eat on our days off. In the middle of a food tour, it can be hard to remember all the suggestions I make, so I wanted to post some suggestions.

The restaurants featured here on the Chef’s Guide to Eating in Undiscovered Charleston are only suggestions, but they’re all places we’ve enjoyed, and continue to enjoy regularly. They’re places where we know or have worked with the Chefs, or places we enjoy going to recharge or to discover inspiration. It’s intended simply as a celebration of those restaurants where we like to go as Chefs.
