There's something comforting and special about the Lowcountry. Whether in its Southern hospitality or its rich culinary traditions, there is an unforgettable quality about Charleston, South Carolina. This particular adventure took me to a sophisticated favorite in the Lowcountry: the Peninsula Grill, located in The Planters Inn; a luxurious and beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of Historic Market Street, at 112 N. Market St.
Since opening in 1997, the Peninsula Grill has left an imprint in Charleston's culinary arena. It has been honored with a Mobil Four-Star rating and AAA Four Diamond, as well as received praises from The New York Times, Food & Wine magazine, Wine Spectator, and Travel & Leisure magazine. Its decor exemplifies simple elegance; with distinct crown-moldings, earth-toned velvet-covered walls and contemporary chandeliers. There is also a romantic, outdoor courtyard, with candle-lit tables sitting next to vine-covered walls.
