La Fourchette

432 King St. Downtown

(843) 722-6261

La Fourchette has a small, dimly-lit dining room, and they don’t advertise widely or even have a website. Located on King Street half a block north of John, it’s not the kind of place that the typical tourist would walk past and decide to wander in. You won’t find Frenchified grits or sweet potatoes on the menu, just genuine Parisian classics like a delightful cassoulet, pommes frites, and mussels to die for. And, for God’s sake, don’t ask for a Coke. There are plenty of genuine French wines, and your server will be more than happy to make a good recommendation. This is one downtown favorite we can keep to ourselves.
