Charleston likes its brunches. On Sunday mornings, we start lining up at our favorite spots, eager to fill up on mimosas, pancakes, and eggs. Everyone has their favorite. The gospel brunch at Halls Chophouse for the high rollers, the cheeseburger at Husk for the hungover, the Mac Attack at the Macintosh for the brave at heart. For this issue of Dish, we put together the ultimate brunch spread, bringing together a collection of plates from around town for the purpose of making you drool.
